Hi all,

I am writing to share information about an internship program that is being
led by Alternatives, APC member based in Montreal. The International Youth
Internship Program (IYIP) is focused on *'technology and communication at
the heart of social change'. *

Internship placements are available to individuals between the ages of 19
and 30 who have a post-secondary diploma and are legally allowed to work in
Canada. The placements are intended to provide international experience,
skills and knowledge that will prepare young people in Canada for future
employment.

APC will host 3 interns in South Africa, with expected start date of
September 2018:

   - Communication and Liaison Intern
   <https://www.alternatives.ca/en/opportunity/communication-and-liaison-intern-association-progressive-communications>
   - ICT Policy Analyst
   <https://www.alternatives.ca/en/opportunity/ict-policy-analyst-association-progressive-communications>
   - African Community Networks Project Intern
   <https://www.alternatives.ca/en/opportunity/african-community-networks-project-intern-association-progressive-communications-apc>

As part of the initiative, Alternatives covers the cost of transportation,
accommodation, travel insurance, and subsistence costs for the interns.
Training and support is provided throughout the entire period of the
internship.

To be eligible for internship, candidates must:

   - Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident or be legally allowed to
   work in Canada;
   - Have a post-secondary diploma and have obtained a degree or diploma
   from a university, college, post-secondary technology school,
   post-secondary institute or CEGEP (general education college and
   professional in Quebec);
   - Be between the ages of 19 to 30 when the final selection is made (when
   the contracts between the trainee and Alternatives are signed);
   - Have never participated in the IYIP.

The selection process for internship placements will begin 24 May 2018.
