Thank you for considering a volunteer position with ChilOut. As a small not-for-profit organisation, ChilOut relies on the support of volunteers and interns to maintain our work. We offer unpaid internships to tertiary students and welcome volunteer support from members of the public who wish to assist us in our work.
ChilOut's Internship Program
ChilOut is looking for a university student to intern with us for one or two days per week, starting later in the year. The successful applicant will need to be able to work at ChilOut's office in the Sydney CBD and be committed to interning with us for a minimum of three months. As an intern, you will be working under the supervision of ChilOut’s Campaign Coordinator to support ChilOut's work in ending the immigration detention of children.
Internship activities will include research, communications, contributing to our campaigns, helping to organise events, and drafting papers and submissions. This is an excellent opportunity for a motivated student who is seeking to pursue a career in international or national advocacy work, community engagement, communications, social justice or human rights law and wants to gain experience in these areas. Best of all, as a ChilOut intern you will be making a real difference to the lives of children who are suffering in immigration detention centres.
If you’re interested in interning with ChilOut, please email a copy of your CV and a cover letter explaining your interest to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
