Human Rights Work Experience Watch
I'm in Year 11 and considering a career in either human rights law or humanitarian aid. I'd really like to do some sort of work experience to see what the area is like - does anyone have any tips on where I could look?
More relevant would be to try and volunteer in your nearest food bank or similar, and begin to understand the multiple challenges involved in aid, its finances, how to deliver, responsibility, opportunity, the pros and cons of aid etc.
However an avenue that might be good to look at is the British Red Cross they do a summer volunteering for 15-18 yr olds at their HQ. I’ve heard it’s quite difficult to get into but it’s worth a try!
