Apply for a Leeuwin Internship

Are you looking for an internship opportunity that will provide you with new opportunities and grow your leadership skills?

Leeuwin Ocean Adventure are currently calling for applications for one of ten Leeuwin Volunteer Internships.

The internships are offered to individuals aged 17+ who have either participated and successfully completed a Leeuwin voyage or have never sailed on the STS Leeuwin II before but have an interest in developing their volunteering skills.

The Leeuwin Ocean Adventure internship program is supported by the Western Australian State Government through the Department of Communities. The aim of the program is to provide young men and women who have already demonstrated an interest in and capacity for community volunteering and leadership to further develop their skills. The internship is not limited to individuals looking to pursue a marine/maritime career.

As a Leeuwin Intern, you’ll be provided with the opportunity to:

  • sail on STS Leeuwin II
  • participate as a volunteer during the day sail season
  • work towards achieving a Leeuwin Ocean Adventure volunteer rating, enabling participation as a voyage volunteer
  • earn WA Certificate of Education (WACE) units and registration of participation on WA Statement of Student Achievement (WASSA)
  • work towards achievement of Duke of Edinburgh’s International Awards
