Quality Internships

More than ever, young people have to overcome an increasingly long and hard journey to enter the labour market.

The European Youth Forum works to ensure that quality internships will become a reality for all young Europeans.

We urge all providers of internships and apprenticeships to commit to our Quality Charter to provide quality working conditions and a clear and coherent code of conduct in order to end the use of young Europeans as a cheap labour force.


Thank you Ms Mogherini, but we need concrete steps on funding and fairness

After a long battle and protests from interns, EU High Representative Federica Mogherini has responded to the EU Ombudsman’s demand that unpaid traineeships in EU external delegations must end. The Global Intern Coalition, along with its member organisations and partners, welcomes this acknowledgment that unpaid traineeships are damaging and unfair.
