The Wave Project has an exciting opportunity for a project intern in East Cornwall. The Wave Project has delivered award winning Surf Therapy since 2010 when Cornwall ran the first ever pilot study. It has remained one of the busiest locations ever since. As a result, the county has been split into two areas; East and West. Each project works with 60 young people each year, with courses running in Spring; Summer and Autumn. These projects run alongside our awesome Surf Clubs which run throughout the year; come rain or shine!

Here in East Cornwall, we are based at three beautiful locations; Newquay, Polzeath and Summerleaze (Bude) beaches. We work with partner surf schools along with our family of wonderful volunteers and Surf Mentors!

We are looking for a skilled intern who is passionate about young people’s mental health and has a love of surfing and the sea.
