I already have a strong desire to work in Indigenous affairs, this experience only strengthened my hopes to make a change in Australia, particularly regarding education for non-Indigenous people and supporting reconciliation.

Nyssa Watson, RA

I am glad to say that at the end of my six week internship at RA, I feel that I have learnt a lot from the experience, gained valuable insight into a career I hope to one day have.

Elizabeth Jones, RA

Anthropology can be a difficult area to break into, so to have the opportunity to prove myself and establish links with such a fantastic organisation was truly invaluable.

Jacinta Perry, RA

I absolutely loved theexperience being an intern at RA, I’ve learnt so much about the Indigenous sector and the role that NGOs play in this area.

Lucy Broughton, RA

I learned so much about how an NGO operates behind-the-scenes, and about some of the challenges involved in pursuing an aim as complex and controversial as 'reconciliation.

Alexandra Osis, RA

I was greatly challenged and inspired by the people I worked with. I was encouraged and engaged intellectually each day by my host organisation.

Sharon Lynch, RA

Thank you - for the opportunity and the support. It really has inspired me to work harder so that I can get out of uni and kick off my career in Aboriginal affairs!

Sharon Lynch, RA

Working with Reconciliation Australia is as much about gaining a greater cultural undertanding of Aborginal and Torres Strait isldner cultures as it is about learning about policies and papers.

Sharon Lynch, RA

Everyone I have met at RA has been passionate and driven to achieve the goals of the organisation and that attitude is contagious!

Sharon Lynch, RA

The internship provided a solid grasp of the key players, the battles won, the steps taken, and the progress lost – a taste of the experiences of those who have been fighting for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander self-determination over the last two hundred years.

Joseph Finbar Piper, RA

All of the tasks set for me were interesting and provided me with insight that I feel is invaluable for my current studies and also for my future career.
