At MPAC, we want to provide challenging opportunities for talented students (undergraduate and graduate levels) to expand their knowledge and benefit from invaluable on-the-job experience in a progressive Public service organisation.
Our internship programme is less structured than in the private sector thereby giving you more flexibility to work according to your needs and as part of a strong team. There are opportunities to gain knowledge and experience in fundraising, policy, communications and advocacy, events, administration and research.
Internship placements at MPAC are normally a block of several weeks or months and it may be possible to get part-time voluntary work during that time.
