The Explore Internship Programme is run by the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA), which represents, supports and campaigns for voluntary organisations, volunteers and communities across Wales.
The programme offers a wide range of short term volunteer placements - at the moment they have over 100 opportunities in Wales.
The placements provide a meaningful experience which enhances employability and skills, complements studies and gives an insight into a challenging and rewarding sector.
The internship content differs from regular volunteering as it is designed around a specific project, for a limited period, usually 2-3 months.
The aim of the programme is to provide you with some valuable work experience whilst you deliver a project or service which enhances the work of the organisation and improves the lives of the people it supports.
