>APPLY NOW: WCC INTERNSHIP PROGRAMME 2010
The World Council of Churches (WCC) will welcome five young people (aged 18-30 years) to serve as interns in its Geneva offices from February 2010 to January 2011. Interns bring valuable experiences to the WCC at the same time as they undertake several modules of ecumenical learning.
The next 12 months' internship period begins in February 2010. In Geneva, the interns will be assigned to one of the WCC working areas. They will carry out their tasks in cooperation with programme staff and under individualized supervision. During their stay in Geneva each intern is expected to plan an ecumenical project to implement in his or her home context when they return in February 2011.
The next generation of interns' areas of work will be 1. International Ecumenical Peace Convocation ( http://www.overcomingviolence.org/iepc ); 2. youth and ecumenical formation ( http://www.oikoumene.org/?id=3069 ); 3. visitors programme ( http://www.oikoumene.org/?id=3185 )/media relations ( http://www.oikoumene.org/?id=3432 ); 4. mission and evangelism ( http://www.oikoumene.org/?id=3103 ); and 5. ecology ( http://www.oikoumene.org/?id=3127 )and social justice ( http://www.oikoum ene.org/?id=3117 ).
Successful candidates are people committed to the ideals of the ecumenical movement, who will bring their energy, commitment and a fresh vision to their specific work assignment. Applicants must send, along with their application, background information about their church or Christian youth network that will help them in implementing their proposed ecumenical project.
Closing date for receiving applications for the five internships is 30 September 2009. As the ability to work in English is a necessary qualificat ion, applications must be written in English.
