Under this programme, CRIDOC seeks to provide a platform more especially to the unemployed youth who have just graduated (even those that are still in school) to gain experience by showcasing their skills and talents in various career fields such as media, advocacy, project management, IT,, community development, etc.

Currently, the Centre has a pool of professional and dedicated young volunteers and interns, who are always eager to contribute their time and skills to the organisation's cause and to have their already existing skills enhanced to greater heights.

In particular, CRIDOC hosts university students undertaking a degree thesis in a research topic that is directly linked to child rights, as long as the student agrees (and the student's learning institution) to share all, if not some, of the key research findings with CRIDOC even if it is primarily meant to be for academic purposes.

CRIDOC welcomes young interns with background in the following areas:
bullet Human Rights
bullet Journalism
bullet Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
bullet Social Sciences
bullet Community Development
bullet Public Health (HIV/Aids focus)
bullet Education Policy and Law

In the near future (this year!), we are planning to enter into formal agreement with some of the key colleges - e.g. Chancellor College, polytechnic College, Skyway College, Corporate Governance College, Shareworld College, etc - to attach at least one student to the CRIDOC Secretariat wishing to do a research related to the child rights issues. While carrying out the research, it is expected that the intern will be able to assist with other basic work/tasks at the Secretariat during the attachment/research period which would be an added value on his/her career. In return, CRIDOC will offer a conducive learning environment necessary for the student to carry out his research, such as a working space, a computer, a library for his/her desk research, some technical advice on some of the child rights issues, etc, etc.

To learn more about this programme, or learn how you can get involved, please do not hesitate to phone or pay us a visit at our secretariat in Lilongwe to have a talk with our Interns/Volunteer Coordinator. Both our telephone and physical address are indicated on the Contact Us» page.
Alternatively, you may just e-mail us here»
