Every year Youth Alive Trust offers 1 or 2 Crichton Cobbers scholarships to trainees who wish to join our team of youth workers and advance their qualifications and experience at the same time. This often involves a youth work course combined with working at Youth Alive Trust to gain the practical hours needed to gain the qualification. There are also other internship opportunities eg: through Praxis/Laidlaw.

Options include; Praxis, Laidlaw, or another provider. You will join an experienced team of youth workers who have a passion for young people, a love for God and a heart to serve!

The Crichton Cobbers Scholarship usually pays for all your tuition fees, and other support depending on your living & study allowance circumstances. If you’re not from New Zealand, we may consider your application if you have good references, and are able to find support for a year, and purchase your own flights. We may be able to help with accommodation. Normally interns are between the ages of 18 – 25. Please contact us for more information and/or an informal chat.
