Among the required documentation is at least one recommendation from someone for whom you have worked or volunteered in a child or youth development capacity and a 500-600 word essay outlining why you are applying, what knowledge and skills you will bring to the internship, what you hope to gain from the experience, and how the internship will support your educational and professional goals.
