The Pacific Disability Forum runs a 6 week Youth Internship program to help train young people with disabilities in all aspects of running a Disabled People’s Organisation. Over the course of the internship, participants are taught the skills they need to become future leaders in their organisation and in the disability movement in the Pacific. This hands-on and practical training covers areas such as governance, administration, leadership and communication.
The first internship was held in May 2012. The training was held at the Pacific Disability Forum offices in Suva, Fiji, and was attended by young people with disabilities from Fiji, Kiribati, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Tuvalu. The next youth internship program will be in 2014, keep an eye on our news page for more details.
