what we do

trainee scheme

16 – 19 year olds

Two-year paid internships

Successful applicants work Saturdays in Colindale.

Training includes office work, youth work, project and event management.

The skills and lessons learnt, I still apply now. I look around and see so many young people still feel lost and having no identity or self awareness of themselves and their history. Especially with the black live matter movement happening around us now. I just think it’s been a blessing to have had Oya at that time.
