Voices of Youth is now accepting applications for VOY blogging internships in English, Spanish and French.
According to Voices Of Youth, this year’s programme will focus in part on the environment and climate change as participants learn how to blog effectively.
The announcement on the Voices Of Youth website read:
“The 3-month internship (February- June 2017) offers you (young people aged 14-25) an opportunity to receive personalized feedback on your blog posts, a series of live interactive sessions with subject matter experts, weekly lessons and tips on blogging, access to a network of international youth bloggers, and the opportunity to have your pieces published on notable digital media platforms.
“At the end of the internships you will have improved your blogging skills with the help of your peers and the VOY Community Coordinator who supervises your work, gained new insights into environmental and climate issues, and been connected to a network of international young bloggers.
“The internship is done by remote participation, which means that interns are not required to travel anywhere.”
VOY goes on to add that a successful completion of the blogging internship will result in a certificate granted by UNICEF.
Interested applicants are expected to apply for the internship by submitting this Google form:
10-15 applicants will be chosen as there is a limited number of spaces. Candidates who qualify for the internship will be contacted. However, for those who do not qualify, VOY emphasised that the community is open to everyone.
“Submit a blog post, comment on posts, participate in our discussions or simply browse through the inspiring articles on our website. Also, don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter!”
The deadline for applications is 10 February 2017 at 12 am (EST) or 5 am(UTC/GMT)
