The Future Africa Internship Program For Young Africans.

The Future Africa Internship Program will allow young Africans with less than two years of work experience to intern for a minimum period of three months in their prospective area of expertise.

The program will provide stipends to encourage the interns to perform their roles to the host organisation. FAIP is our response to a critical need of young Africans – career path decision.

Once accepted, prospective interns will undergo a capacity building program on workplace and FAIP values: this equips them with the right mindset to deliver value for their host organisation. Successful beneficiaries will be matched according to proximity and career alignment with available host organisations.

The Future Africa Internship Program offers highly motivated individuals an excellent opportunity to gain industry experience, test-drive their careers, and be exposed to the great stuff from giants in their industries. It also allows you to gain new perspectives, innovative ideas while you improve your skills in a diverse environment amongst the next generation of future leaders.

Beyond the learning opportunities, as an intern, you will get to work with some of the industry’s best people and are exposed to real-life projects, challenges, and company initiatives. In addition to developing technical skills and experience, the internship program will allow interns to develop interpersonal skills by networking with other interns.

The Future of work is about the focus on the individual rather than tasks and locations. The Future Africa Internship program will breed a new tribe of Africans who are intentionally equipped and guided through their passion: they will easily navigate the competitive global career terrain because they will have the unique opportunity of standing on the shoulder of industry giants.
