What do I need to think about when planning to make a community internship request?

When planning a community internship request, think about:

  • why the internship is needed and what will be achieved
  • how the internship will improve the host organisation’s ability to do its work and make it stronger
  • the amount needed to pay the intern (this should be the same as their current salary)
  • ways to support the intern during the internship
  • what systems the host organisation has in place to manage an internship
  • how the host organisation will achieve the internship outcomes
  • the benefits and outcomes from the internship, even after it is over
  • ways to share knowledge after the internship is over.
