It has been a pleasure hosting the many talented interns over the years. It has been a mutually beneficial and rewarding experience. I think I have learnt as much as they have.

We have been fortunate to attract many wonderful interns who have displayed a great interest in our sector and the work that we do, which is very diverse. Interns have undertaken special projects which has greatly enhanced our advocacy work and developed positions with sound research and evidence.

Current hosts

Indigenous sector host organisations span a broad range of areas including health, education, research, law and justice, policy, environment, STEM and youth work. Australia wide. Aurora is open to working with culturally responsive organisations outside of the Indigenous sector to host Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander interns.

With the Internship program we seek to effect systemic change through significantly increasing employability and building Indigenous leadership. We are also aiming to build long term relationships with our host organisations, both to provide an excellent opportunity for the interns, but also to provide the best service to our hosts to gain meaningful support from Aurora interns and benefit from capability transfer.

The Program has facilitated over 3,300 internships at over 200 host organisations, providing additional support to effectively deliver services to meet the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. In turn, host organisations have supported interns to develop their practical skills, gain real-world experience and build professional networks.
