Youth Internship Programme By WWF
The WWF Youth Internship Programme allows dedicated and enthusiastic young people to have a 3-6 month international internship experience. This lets the interns work with WWF in such places as Bhutan, Bolivia, Madagascar, Paraguay, Senegal, Pacific and at WWF International.
Goals Of The Programme
The WWF international internships aim to provide you with a powerful, direct experience of the unique challenges developing nations face in protecting their environment and its assets. The goal is to enable you to effectively communicate your experiences to others.
Overall, WWF wants to provide you with an insight into the world of conservation; work on the ground and in the field. This could be an assignment with a WWF project in an extremely rural and isolated community or it could be with a local WWF office combining visits to the field. Whatever the context, WWF hopes and believes that you will be inspired and motivated by what you see, what you do and that you will carry this through the rest of your life.
The only mandatory thing is that you should be zealous enough to put your heart and soul into the kind of work WWF does for the world. You may have any background any career. All you must do is demonstrate some type of commitment to the goals of WWF. You are not required to be pursuing a career in conservation.
What work will be done?
During your placement, you will be integrated into a WWF team to work on conservation initiatives in line with the objectives of the project or programme you are engaged with. An example of such a project could be the establishment of a new protected area where you’ll be involved with a range of activities such as the collection of field data, consultations with local communities, building infrastructure support.
You will also be asked to write compelling stories, blogs, click pictures and other digital communications about your experiences.
International Internships like any other internships can contrive a strong professional base for you. Brace yourself, prepare and get on board with WWF. 🙂
