Youth Internship Programme 2006-2007

01 October 2006

The WCC welcomes three young people (aged 18-30) to serve as interns in its Geneva offices. Successful candidates are people committed to the ideals of the ecumenical movement, who will bring their energy, commitment and fresh vision to a specific work assignment.

For the WCC, interns represent the potential of the ecumenical movement, and its search for a renewed vocation. Interns bring valuable experience to the WCC at the same time as they go through several modules of ecumenical learning.

WCC youth internships are usually for a period of 12 months. The current internship cycle is from October 2006 to September 2007.
