Jack Petchey Internship Programme

Supporting young talent and youth charities

About the Jack Petchey Internship Programme

The Jack Petchey Internship Programme is designed to give young people a flying start in the youth sector and to help youth organisations increase the support they provide for young people in London and Essex. It aims to support dynamic young individuals on their first step towards being the sector’s future leaders. By giving charities a grant to help fund an intern, the programme gives organisations an additional and valuable resource to help them achieve their mission. The programme includes up to 90% funding towards the intern’s salary, a training bursary for each intern, six professional development workshops and mentoring to help the young interns grow in their skills.

Applications for the 2024-25 Internship Programme are now closed!

Applications to host an intern have now closed for the 2024-25 cohort

However, if you are a youth charity or CIO working with young people in London and Essex, with an income between £150,000 and £5,000,000, you are eligible to apply for a grant to help fund a paid intern at your organisation for twelve months next year. Please sign up to our newsletter and our social media pages to receive updates about our next internship programme launch date, provisionally summer 2024.
