#FellowshipConnect: @JointInitiative Launches Foreign Internship Program for Youths

Standard

“Joint Initiative for Development (JID) is a registered Non-Profit organisation in Nigeria. In over 4 years of our existence, JID has reached over 3,000 young people through our programmes, supported over 300 MSMEs and mobilized over 10 million Naira worth of donations to public schools. Our mission is to increase citizens’ participation in the development of their communities and we take active steps to create programmes and events through which these goals can be achieved.

In light of proposed diversification of the Nigerian Economy towards the real sector, I am pleased to introduce our Fellowship Connect Program. Fellowship Connect is an international human capacity development program that is designed to connect young Nigerian professionals working in the real sector of the economy with Corporate America in a bid to bridge capacity gaps. Fellows will have the opportunity to work with top US firms for a period of between 3-6 months. We also have arrangements for shorter periods too.

The Fellowship Connect candidates will go through a comprehensive application process that will ensure a best-fit match for both the host organization and the intending Fellows. At the end of the fellowship, Fellows will:
•Transfer knowledge gained during the fellowship period
•Develop new practices
•Share new skills and valuable work experience.
•Promote innovation and change in home organization
•Develop professional skill set and refine others
•create a network of global change-makers
•Work locally but think globally

Applications will open on 2nd October 2015 for interested applicants/organisations and the programme will start in February 2016.”
