WHAT YOU WILL GET OUT OF THIS

This internship is eligible for college credit. Plus, you get a free ABC t-shirt, free entry to any paid ABC events, and one-year membership.

We have fun while forging change in the culture and infrastructure of the city we love, and we’re looking for a community-minded Atlantan to join our team. ABC is located in the Reynoldstown neighborhood, right on the Wylie Street section of the BeltLine and convenient to the King Memorial and Reynoldstown/Inman Park MARTA stations as well as the 21 bus line. We encourage commuting by active transportation, and provide a shower, lockers, and a supportive environment for utilitarian cycling. Each month we set aside a staff social hour to build relationships and get to know each other better. Our staff is eclectic, but we all share a passion for our mission, love of a good laugh, and a commitment to inclusion and equity.
