INJAZ Al-Arab is an affiliate of Junior Achievement Worldwide, a non-profit organization that seeks to overcome youth unemployment around the world by providing skills to youth in the areas of financial literacy, workforce readiness and entrepreneurship. Our office is based in Amman, Jordan and we manage regional efforts for the network. Since 2004, INJAZ has impacted 1.6 million lives across the Arab world.
Interns will work with the Business Development Department at INJAZ Al-Arab assisting with regional fundraising and donor stewardship activities across 15 regional countries, from Morocco to Bahrain. Interns should have an interest in the region, a passion for helping youth and possess skills of attention to detail, ability to multitask and a keen ability to write well in English. Interns can expect to obtain a better understanding of international non-profit operations, an appreciation for fundraising and donor stewardship, to hone their writing skills, ability to work under pressure, and finally to experience working in an office of passionate people whilst getting to know more about Arab culture.
