TYPF offers internship opportunities at specific times in the year to anyone looking for work experience in the areas that we focus on. Keep checking this page for updates!
Interns work across TYPF's programmes, or work on core skills such as fund raising, communications, or policy engagement. Interns get exposure to community interventions and have the opportunity to conceptualise, implement and evaluate community interventions in primarily low-resource localities in urban and peri-urban Delhi.
Our internship programme is different from our year-long volunteering position in terms of length, scope of work, and intensity of engagement with TYPF as an organisation. As an intern, you get to work across programmes and also on over-arching organisational responsibilities like communications, fund-raising, and administrative duties (yes, this means indexing our library, which is its own kind of fun, really). Interns are also encouraged to find their own niche within TYPF and are given the space to run their own projects within our programmes and organisational work. An example of this is the Women's History Month project in March 2017 across our social media portals. Most importantly, our interns get to hang out with a fun bunch of young people who take their lunches very seriously!
A few parameters for joining TYPF as an intern are:
You must be able to commit a minimum of 3 months to TYPF
Because our programmes are community-based and run across various sites in the city, you must be open to flexible working hours and be able to arrange for your travel across the city.
Prior engagement with issues of gender, sexuality, education and governance would be a plus, but is not mandatory.
Internships are usually paid after the first month.
