Our Moonee Valley Internships Program offers internship opportunities to young people to gain additional skills and support to enter the competitive job market. The project is a response to the increasing youth unemployment rate in our region. As an organisation we believe it is important to invest into our young people's futures.
We are very excited to have partnered with Hawkers Beer Brewery to offer a rare internship opportunity to a young person in their brew house in Reservoir.
MVI interns receive a total of $20 per day
a volunteer allowance for costs related to their role (e.g. lunch & travel)
