Information for Host Organisations

The Community Internship Programme offers you a fantastic opportunity to improve your capabilities as an organisation by utilising skills and experience from outside your normal reach. There are often areas of a business that no one from within the organisation is able to progress. Lack of expertise can be a real hurdle to the progress and effectiveness of the organisation. This is the hurdle the Community Internship Programme aims to help you leap.

If your organisation needs access to skills and experience beyond the range of your own staff's capabilities and you feel that you could offer a good internship experience to a person with those skills, then the Community Internship Programme is for you.

How it works

The Community Development Group of the Department of Internal Affairs provides each successful host organisation with funding for the salary of the intern, resource costs associated with the internship and GST. Host organisations may apply for any of the three internship sizes with their corresponding levels of funding.

Proposals will be considered for internships that will:

· Strengthen the organisational capacity of the host organisation resulting in on-going benefit to the organisation and the community it serves well beyond the term of the internship.

    · Allow the intern to share their particular knowledge, skills and experience with the host organisation.
      · Strengthen the skills of the intern so that the intern's home organisation also benefits.
        · Improve relationships between the community, public and private sectors.
