Apply as Intern

A meaningful internship

The VALE Intern

We’re hoping to offer a meaningful internship to a young person who can help us make the course a smoother experience and let the trainers focus more on content than admin tasks.

But with every training course, there are some tasks that we can’t escape: travel research and logistics, venue logistics, communication with participants, preparing and updating documents, event preparation, finances admin task such as receipts and reimbursements, social media, and, very importantly, reporting.


The selected intern will have the opportunity to effect the tasks they receive and even suggest things they would like to do as part of their role. The pie chart is an example of how the work could be divided.
