Internships and Student Placements

Got a passion for youth issues? Want to get some experience at a leading youth advocacy organisation in NSW? Intern with Youth Action!

In March, August and December each year, we take on a number of (unpaid) student interns. This is a fantastic and fun opportunity to get an experience in the social policy and advocacy space 

As a Youth Action intern you will:

  • Learn to find, analyse, synthesise and present information from a social policy and advocacy perspective
  • Grow your ability to work collaboratively as part of an organisational team
  • Learn about the work of Youth Action and issues facing youth work and young people in NSW
  • Develop relationships with a network of talented and qualified professionals
  • Participate in a structured interns workshop series.

Applications for our Summer internship program are now open! Summer internships start in January, with orientation on the 21 December.
