The Jack Petchey Foundation is delighted to announce that we are opening up our internship programme for new applications and will be funding year-long internships for 25 young people at 25 youth charities in London and Essex in 2022.
If you are a youth charity 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 twelve-month paid intern at your organisation starting in January 2022.
We will be providing part-funding towards the salary costs (at Real Living Wage rate) of an intern. Grants of up to £19,700 will be available, depending on the size and location of your organisation.
Please see the guidance notes and below for full details.
To apply, please complete the online application form by Monday 20 September 2021. Please read the guidance notes carefully before applying. We particularly welcome applications from youth organisations in Essex, as well as in London.
If you are a young person interested in applying for an internship role, we will be advertising the vacancies later in the year. Please check this page again in November 2021 and sign up for our newsletter here.
The Jack Petchey Internship Programme is designed to give young people a flying start in the youth sector and to help youth charities increase the support they provide for young people in London and Essex. It aims to support dynamic young individuals in their first step towards being the sector’s future leaders. By giving charities a grant to help fund an intern, the programme gives organisations additional and valuable resource to help them achieve their mission, offering expert support to their beneficiaries. The programme includes part-funding towards the intern’s salaries (at London Living Wage/Real Living Wage), a training bursary and training programme for each intern and mentoring to help the young interns grow in their skills.
This will be the fourth cohort of our successful internship programme. You can see the list of the roles and organisations of our current interns below.
The Jack Petchey Foundation was set up by Sir Jack Petchey CBE to inspire and celebrate young people. We invest in programmes and partnerships to benefit young people aged 11-25 across London and Essex.
