Hear from our former interns

Hear from previous Children Change Colombia interns about their experiences, and what you can gain from the opportunity!
Fundraising and Programs Intern
June 2020 - January 2020
"I have had a great experience working as the Fundraising and Programs intern for CCC the past 6 months. The small team was friendly and welcoming from the beginning and the work has been really interesting and varied. I have developed my knowledge of working for an international NGO, grant writing and compiling reports, as well as getting involved with planning fundraising campaigns. I have also had the opportunity to take part in training sessions around safeguarding and recruitment as well as be sponsored to undertake training courses in fundraising and the sustainable development goals.
One of the best things about being an intern with CCC is that you will feel like a part of the team straight away and that your ideas are listened to and valued. For anyone looking for experience in an international NGO focused on empowering children, this internship will be perfect for you."
Communications and Fundraising Intern
June 2020 - December 2020
"Last year I completed a six-month internship with Children Change Colombia, as Fundraising and Communications Intern. Since completing my internship, I was so pleased to be given the chance to stay on with the team as a Fundraising and Communications Officer!
I would really recommend an internship with CCC. Despite beginning my internship while everyone was working from home, I was immediately made to feel an important part of the team. From day one I was involved in meetings with the team where I was encouraged to contribute my opinions and ideas, whether that's planning social media content, organizing virtual fundraising events, or brainstorming for the annual Christmas appeal.
I've also gained loads of practical skills, which will no doubt be useful long after I leave CCC. I've learned how to update website pages, design Instagram posts on Canva, and support the team with various administrative tasks.
Most of all, its been so lovely getting to know the wonderful people who work at CCC, and to learn all about the transformative work they are doing with at-risk children in Colombia."
Programmes and Innovation Volunteer
July 2020 - December 2020
“For me, being part of the Children Change Colombia team is an incredible opportunity to learn from all the experienced staff and project partners about how charities can best work in partnership with local organizations to defend the rights of vulnerable children and young people.
CCC is a charity with 30 years of experience, full of people willing to help you grow, both professionally and personally. I truly recommend applying for this internship opportunity. "
