Meet Jonathan our new youth and student intern

Jonathan Shaw10 September 2014

We are delighted to welcome Jonathan Shaw to the North East Team.

Jonathan is joining us from Nottingham where he’s had his own photography business and led the youth group in his local church.

During his 10-month placement, Jonathan will work with youth groups, students and churches across the North East to inspire them to take action to tackle poverty.

A message from Jonathan

'I'm the Christian Aid Collective's intern for the North East, based in Newcastle. I've had a really varied working life so far, from photography, to van driving to bar work, with travelling and volunteering in Kenya in between.

I hope the internship will give me invaluable experience of engaging with young people in the North East about the work Christian Aid does, and give me the opportunity to learn and explore my passion for social justice with others.'

Ethiopian stories

In the autumn, Jonathan will travel to Ethiopia for two weeks to see the work of our partners first hand. He will meet some of the people who will feature in the resources for Christian Aid Week 2015.

Invite Jonathan to your group

If your church has a youth group that would like to put their faith into action and help build a better world, then please let us know.

Jonathan can visit your church to speak about his experience of seeing our work in Ethiopia or he can run an interactive session with your youth or student group on Christian Aid’s work and campaigns. Please contact Jonathan Shaw on 0191 228 0115 or email jshaw@christian-aid.org to find out more.
