Description

Global Communities is an international development non-profit organization. Our mission is to create long-lasting, positive and community-led change that improves the lives and livelihoods of vulnerable people across the globe.

Global Communities is implementing the USAID-funded Up to Youth Activity in Kosovo, a five-year, positive youth development project working with youth 15 – 24 years of age. Our goal is to empower youth to make a positive impact on their communities and build youth resiliency to risky behaviors. Our activity has three (3) primary objectives:

  • Objective 1: Mobilize Youth to be forces for positive change;
  • Objective 2: Develop and demonstrate life/soft skills among youth; and,
  • Objective 3: Develop, build and support resilience partners in fostering an environment for youth to engage in a positive and meaningful way.

Global Communities is seeking two (2) youth to offer structured internship opportunities working directly with activity staff in engaging stakeholders and implementing project activities. These internships will offer an important opportunity for youth to have increased responsibilities and act as forces for positive change in their communities – but also develop and use targeted life/soft skills for positive change. Each internship lasts six (6) months, at approximately 20 hours per week. Interns will receive a small stipend and written certification of their contributions to Up to Youth at the end of their internship.
