Community Leaders in Africa Internship
The Community Leaders in Africa Internship Program is a one-of-a-kind field-based internship at one of MCW’s affiliate organizations in Africa.
What is it
The Community Leaders in Africa Internship Program is a one-of-a-kind field-based internship open to all alumni from MCW Global’s Young Leaders Fellowship and Young Leaders Conference programs. During this 3 to 6-month internship, selected interns gain practical skills, knowledge and networks in community development through a culturally immersive experience at one of MCW Global’s affiliate organizations in Africa: MC-Rwanda, MC-Tanzania or MC-Zambia.
The core aim of the Internship Program is to develop the next wave of community development leaders through hands-on training and collaboration with local communities.
What We Offer
What makes this internship unique is that it merges the two worlds of MCW Global’s intervention areas that seldom collide: Africa Programs and Young Leaders Programs. It is at the convergence of these two programs that interns have the special opportunity to grow both professionally and personally in an exceptional setup.
A Holistic Approach to Leadership Development
The internships reflect MCW Global’s commitment to equipping young leaders with the necessary tools to tackle contemporary challenges in an ever-evolving world. This program is for all high-potential young leaders with an established record of community development and a desire to contribute to the transformation of communities through global exchange.
