The Canadian Parliamentary Friends of Tibet Internship Program was launched in 2007 by the Canadian Parliamentary Friends of Tibet then headed by the Hon. Senator Consiglio Di Nino. The first internship, six weeks long, saw 4 young Tibetan-Canadian students hired and placed in the offices of various parliamentarians. It was a great first trial run and success, with three of the interns being hired into the offices of parliamentarians following the internship, including one in a Foreign Minister’s office, and the fourth subsequently finding employment in a government department.
Here’s a great blog post about it with pictures, from Lhakar Diaries (by Tenzin Lobsang, a young Tibetan-Canadian): http://lhakardiaries.com/2013/03/27/take-action-for-tibet-from-the-inside/
Here’s a link to their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/130019053836896/?fref=ts
