Interns work alongside our dedicated team of staff at our offices in Bethnal Green on a number of organisational and administrative activities, from desk-based research to events organisation.
Interns attend major staff meetings and brainstorming sessions and are encouraged to attend lunchtime seminars and events. We introduce interns to all aspects of our work and ensure that their input forms a relevant and valuable contribution to our on-going projects. Interns have co-authored reports, written blog posts and helped to present our work – we try to ensure that interns have an active part in the Young Foundation’s work.
We arrange regular social events for interns to meet Young Foundation staff and get to know each other. A training programme is provided for interns covering: Excel; project management; research and advisory skills; facilitation; business model canvas; filming; external affairs and social media; and a CV workshop.
We work across a wide range of policy areas, from youth leadership, practical learning and youth justice to community regeneration, health and wellbeing, and with a wide range of organisations using a comprehensive set of tools and approaches.
