TYPES OF INTERNSHIP AND APPLICATION
We offer internships in all of our regional offices. Many of the interns accepted into the Headquarters internship first complete a regional internship, are active WYA members in their country, and receive recommendations on their outstanding work.
WYA offers internships for young people of varied educational and expertise backgrounds. Applicants can apply for any of the other regional offices only after completing a regional internship. Once accepted into the internship, applicants will be matched to a position that best corresponds to their interests and skills.
