Urban Saints have put together an interesting Internship project called LEVEL-UP that offers a wide range of experience, opportunity and training. (A serious amount of money to find though).
Musing more generally:
There is an absolute explosion of internship opportunities and I’d be very interested to see what percentage are filled (Might see press-gangs operating for various agencies in the resource area at Soul Survivor at this rate). With youth unemployment such an issue then internships could be a great opportunity, I am concerned that some though (and they are rare but dangerous) are keener on the free labour dimension than on the experience and training dimension. Where they work well though what a great opportunity for growth, discipleship, learning AND young people helping to shape the organisation they are serving with.
I was wondering about compiling a list of internships but I can’t see how I’d even start to do justice to the opportunities.
Has the phrase “Gap Year” been confined to the recycling bin now?
