Street Child


Street Child is a UK based charity that currently runs programmes across Sierra Leone and has established itself as a leading organisation providing quality and sustainable education to thousands of children.


Street Child runs two programmes:


1.       ‘No Child Left Behind’ delivers high impact projects to reduce the number of children dependent on the nation’s streets and reintegrates them into family life and school

2.       ‘Every Child in School’ focuses on providing first time education to rural communities giving them their first ever school and teacher training. ECiS aims to prevent children in rural villages migrating to urban centres and ending up dependent on the street for survival. 


Between 2008 when it was launched and 2012, Street Child reunited 2,000 street children with their families and created educational opportunities for more than 10,000 children.

Young Leadership Intern Role

At Street Child, we are very proud of our volunteer-based approach.  Our small London team provides strategic oversight for the programme work in Sierra Leone, focuses on fundraising and communications for the development and expansion of Street Child, and provides administrative and other support for the work in Sierra Leone and beyond. 

We are very lucky to have some fantastic volunteers committed to our cause, and we are now looking for an outstanding individual to undertake a Young Leadership internship.

The specific aim of the role is to assist in the development of a Young Leadership programme for 16 – 25 year olds in schools and universities. 


The ideal candidate would have the following:


A creative and innovative individual with fresh and exciting ideas for engaging young people.
A good knowledge of the national curriculum.

Some experience of working in schools or with young people.

Knowledge of leadership skills.

A proactive and professional approach.
Excellent written and verbal communications skills.
Ability to work both independently and as a part of a team.
A keen interest in charity and development.
