Voices of Youth opens applications for VOY blogging internships. The 3-month internship, starting in February 2017, offers young people an opportunity to develop writing, research and critical thinking skills. Internships are available in English, Spanish and French. Deadline to apply is February 10th.
This year VOY is trying something new and inspiring for young people worldwide. That’s why the internships will have a partial focus on climate change and the environment – one of the world’s most pressing issues.
The 3-month internship offers young people aged 14-25 an opportunity to receive personalized feedback onblog posts, a series of live interactive sessions with subject matter experts, weekly lessons and tips on blogging, access to a network of international youth bloggers, and the opportunity to have pieces published on notable digital media platforms. The internship is done by remote participation, which means that interns are not required to travel anywhere.
Upon successful completion of the internship, interns will receive a certificate of merit by UNICEF.
In total, about 10-15 applicants will be selected to participate in each internship.
All your donations will be used to pay the magazine’s journalists and to support the ongoing costs of maintaining the site.
