We have recently introduced film and photography programs at the schools where we work to provide children from underprivileged backgrounds the opportunity to express their creativity. These programs are focused on providing children with the opportunity to expand their learning beyond the core syllabus generally taught at these schools and also provide them with an opportunity to gain a skill very relevant for the 21st century.
As an intern on this program, you would assist with delivery of the program while also looking at how the program can be extended to reach more students. You will help with the development of a curriculum to expand the reach of the film and media program and also develop material that can be used to publicise this program.
The interns could be working with local health centres or local schools to understand the key health issues, conduct assessments and help develop programs to improve the health of the children and adults in the local community.
From setting up a photo gallery, running competitions and even possibly setting up a film festival to showcase the work of the children you could be involved in a number of creative projects. This internship also provides a perfect opportunity to build your own portfolio and enhance your CV to really stand out of the crowd when it comes to differentiating yourself in this very competitive sector.
As this is a fairly new initiative you will have a key role to build and shape our media curriculum. We are looking to introduce modules around film, media studies and photography. It will also be your responsibility to showcase and market the programs to build interest amongst students and partner schools.
You will take a leading role in conducting the needs assessments for any new media initiatives and help measure and evaluate the effectiveness of our programs in country. You will have to put together a scale using KPI’s to evaluate areas such as volunteers, projects and successfulness of programs .
You will also have the exciting and rewarding opportunity to get involved in the delivery of the programs you are creating as well as managing media volunteers and delivery of group projects.
Finally you could also have the opportunity to help with the media strategy of our marketing across the organisation. This will give you vital skills to take home and into the workplace.
Firstly, a great opportunity to learn about international community development and media capabilities in a developing country. Secondly, living and working overseas will offer a platform for personal development, taking you outside your comfort zone, gaining new skills and helping you grow as an individual.
Finally, as a program intern your work will benefit the local communities we support and you will have the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy and your unique handprint on the program!
