You will introduce The Challenge to young people in your area: finding, selecting and placing local 16-year-olds into The Challenge’s local programmes.  Ideally you’ll play a team mentor role this summer so you really know what you’re talking about! You’ll need impressive communications skills and the ability to build rapport quickly, which you’ll use with diverse audiences – students, parents and teachers.  You’ll also need perseverance to help young people and their parents through the application process and keep them engaged right up until the start of their programme.  Successful interns are eligible to apply for ongoing Marketing Associate roles.
