Your support enables us to fund educational resources and our interns programme. Introduced in 2017 the Commission Intern Programme brings 24 young people each year to Western Europe to work at some of the Commission’s most iconic sites. The role develops skills and helps create our Ambassadors of the future. Our interns engage with our visitors and help them to maximise their visit. They offer guided tours, assist with tracing relatives, help find a grave and answer the many other questions our visitors have.

The Interns are also heavily involved in major commemorative events held by our funding nations and key partners. In 2018 the interns assisted the Australian Government at our cemeteries at Villers Bretonneux and Le Hamel; worked with the Royal British Legion at their Great Pilgrimage Service in Ieper; helped to install the 1,500 Shrouds of the Somme at Thiepval, and welcomed President Macron and Prime Minister May to Thiepval as part of both nations Armistice commemorations.

Your support enables us to fund this and many other valuable educational iniatives and community activities – join us today.
