About the Internship Programme 2020-21

Jack Petchey Foundation is delighted to announce that we are doubling the size of our internship programme and will be offering year-long funded internships for 40 young people at 40 youth organisations in London and Essex in 2021.

This £1m programme is designed to give young people a flying start in the charity 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, the programme gives organisations additional and valuable resource to help them achieve their mission offering expert support to their beneficiaries. The programme includes the intern’s salaries (paid at London Living Wage), a training bursary for each intern and mentoring to help the young interns grow in their skills.

This will be the third year of our successful internship programme.  You can see the profiles of our most recent interns below, who graduated from the internship programme in November 2020.

Background to the programme

In 2018, the Jack Petchey Foundation launched a new paid internship programme (following on from a partnership with the Rank Foundation who have delivered a similar programme for many years). We offered grants to ten separate youth charities to enable them to fund a year-long internship placement.  In 2019, we doubled the size of the fund and we offered year-long funded internships for 20 young people at 20 organisations based in London and Essex in the youth sector.

This programme is designed to 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 gives organisations additional and valuable resource to help them achieve their mission offering expert support to their beneficiaries.

Youth charities across London and Essex apply for a grant to fund the recruitment of a new intern onto their team for a year placement. The Jack Petchey Foundation funds the salary costs and offers training bursaries for the interns, alongside a range of training and development opportunities for the interns and their managers.
