Jack Petchey Foundation Internship Programme

Supporting young talent and youth charities



The Jack Petchey Foundation is launching a new programme. We are offering grants to ten separate youth charities to enable them to fund a year-long internship placement.

This programme will give young people a flying start in the charitable sector. It aims to support dynamic young individuals in their first step towards being the sector’s future leaders. By giving charities the funding to recruit an intern, this programme will should give organisations additional and valuable resource to help them achieve their mission offering expert support to their beneficiaries.

Training opportunities are an integral part of this programme. We want to see the interns achieving their potential by inspiring, investing in, developing and promoting activities that increase their personal, social, emotional and physical development.

We believe that a key to this success is also supporting their line managers in how best to offer inspirational leadership.

The start of the programme will see a training conference where each intern and their line manager will be bought together. In addition to this we will have a ‘Review conference’, a final celebration event, and each intern will also have access to a personal training bursary.

By providing mentoring and training opportunities for interns we will have a positive impact on the interns themselves, on the youth sector where they work, and on the young people who the sector exists to benefit. 

Organisations wishing to apply for Internship funding should read the Guidance Notes in full, and then complete an Application Form.

Applications will be accepted from 9am on Friday 25th May 2018.

Completed forms along with full Job Description and Person Specification for the required roles should be emailed to internprogramme@petchey.co.uk by 5pm on Friday 22nd June 2018.
