Voice Of Youth Blogging Internships

Applications are now open for the a 10-week-long Voices of Youth (VOY) blogging internship.

VOY is UNICEF’s vibrant community of youth bloggers from all over the world, offering inspiring, original insight and opinion on a variety of topics.

Voices of Youth are looking for 5-10 young people from across the world, between 14-25 years old, to join two UNICEF campaigns addressing major issues impacting millions of children: End Violence & Children Uprooted

End Violence

Violence against children marks them forever – and ending it is everybody’s business.

Children Uprooted

Millions of children are fleeing violence, disaster or poverty – and we need to protect their rights and their futures.

Candidates should have a clear passion for one of the campaign issues, be eager to blog and improve their writing skills, participate in online discussions regularly, and attend expert speaker sessions.

How does it work?

You will pick ONE of the two campaigns and craft blog posts that focus on the issues it addresses. For each blog post you receive feedback on your writing, get access to tips & tricks on how to write a good blog post, exchange ideas with other blogging interns and hear from experts.

At the end of the internship you will have improved your blogging skills, gained new insights on global issues, been connected to a network of international young bloggers, and have been a part of a worldwide campaign.

Please note that this internship is done by remote participation – so you will NOT be required to travel anywhere.
