GL engages with youth through our growing internship programme. The six-month internship programme continues to grow both at GL headquarters and at our satellite offices.

Our interns assist us with programme work – whether they conduct background research, assist with data capturing or write text themselves, they are a part of nearly all of our major research projects. Interns also assist with the day-to-day activities of what it means to run a busy office.
