Do you want to join a dynamic NGO focussed on young people in one of the largest urban areas in France? An internship at the OFCI may be right what you are looking for!

We are constantly looking for full time interns prepared to take on an Erasmus+ Traineeship for between 3 and 12 months working at the heart of our organisation. We are accepting applications nearly year-round, and are able to be flexible with your proposed dates, so don’t hesitate! We will accept applications from any field that could be relevant to the management of an NGO; it is up to you to tell us how you think you could be an asset to our organisation and we would love to hear from you. We are looking for creative interns who can bring us some new ideas as well as contribute to our current activities.

In addition, a working knowledge of English is a must due to the international nature of the work. Whilst French is optional, it would be great if you are willing to learn! 

« I decided to come to France to work on my language skills but at the beginning, I wasn’t confident enough to work in French. The OFCI offered me the perfect balance to improve as I was able to do the important stuff in English and build up my French with my colleagues at the same time. »

The OFCI is an organisation focused on youth, and runs thanks to the contributions of many young people between the ages of 18 and 30. The main focus is to create projects with an international and intercultural aspect, forging links with other young people from around the world. These missions have focused on a wide variety of fields, they include (but are not limited to): human rights advocacy, environment protection, socially engaged art, digital transition, and healthy lifestyles.

Within this framework, the OFCI has sent over 150 young people in 7 years, taking part in more than 65 projects and developing a vast index of methods, multimedia content, digital tools and activities all with the aim of bringing together and empowering active citizens. We lead activities both across Europe as well as in France on a more local level.

« In 2018, I decided to go for an internship within the framework of Erasmus+ right after defending my MA thesis. Fortunately, I got selected to join the OFCI team. Working together with Youri Bergoug as my leader, Vaida Krikštaponytė, Deimantė Čiupkovaitė (Lithuanians) and Joshua Aghadiuno (UK) as my fellow trainees was amazing due to the exchange of ideas and cultural backgrounds. It was an enriching experience to organise an event about Venezuela for cultural awareness and participate in a project in Lithuania to deal with the unemployment topic. »
