Each year, the World YWCA offers both long and short-term internships for YWCA members from across the globe. These are fantastic opportunities for members to participate in some of the global activities of the YWCA.
The one-year (long-term) program provides a special opportunity for two young women to work as part of the World YWCA staff and volunteer team in Geneva.
The short-term advocacy and communications internships provide four young women with the opportunity to participate in important sessions at either the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) in New York, sessions of the CEDAW Committee, the UN Human Rights Council and International Periodic Review in Geneva, and other international events.
Applications for the 2016 internship program are now closed.
Members who are interested in applying for a World YWCA Internship must first submit their application to YWCA Canberra for endorsement. These will then be forwarded to YWCA Australia, who will select the final four applications from across Australia to submit to World YWCA.
