McCusker Centre for Citizenship

The McCusker Centre for Citizenship offers structured, quality internships with not for profit, community and government organisations locally. Taylah Jones, is one of our most recent McCusker Centre interns at Shelter WA. 

Taylah is currently studying a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Western Australia (UWA), undertaking a double major in Communications and Media, and Anthropology and Sociology. 

Taylah was raised in a small regional town in the South West and was drawn to the strong community values and active community commitment displayed by both the McCusker Centre and Shelter WA.

Throughout her time at UWA, Taylah has also pursued some urban design studies and very much looks forward to combining her different studying passions into her internship.

Taylah is very eager to expand her knowledge on the housing and community sector and is very much looking forward to applying her knowledge of media and communications to her work here at Shelter WA.

The McCusker Centre for Citizenship at UWA was established in 2015, with a generous endowment from the McCusker Charitable Foundation, and seeks to foster caring, connected and socially engaged citizens who actively contribute to the wellbeing of their communities.

The Centre is the first of its kind in Australia and collaborates with students and the broader UWA community, not for profit organisations, government and business to make a difference in our communities locally, nationally and globally through structured, quality internships, events and exchange opportunities.

Internships are open to all UWA students - undergraduate and postgraduate - and student interns come from across all faculties. Students are matched based on their application and the internship opportunities available. Internships are normally for a minimum of 100 hours, and can be completed in a block period over the summer or winter break or over a semester, depending on what works for both the organisation and student.

Invitations for host organisations wishing to offer Summer or Semester One internships are now open. For more information contact Tennille Trevaskis via email or on 6488 4254. Website.
