Internship Opportunities at Restless Development 2022 We know young people have the power to solve the challenges we face in our world, but they are being ignored and overlooked. We are the agency that works with young people so they can lead in solving those challenges. Whether that means supporting communities to end child marriage or prevent HIV, we work with young people to change their lives and the lives of people in their communities. Our programmes are genuinely life-changing, but can’t do any of this without talented, creative individuals at every level of our organization.
About the Role
Youth are known to face disproportionate challenges, due to barriers in accessing life and employability skills development opportunities among other services. Across all contexts, there is an urgent need to strengthen communities’ abilities to cope with socio-economic shocks, to mitigate negative impacts on their development efforts.
