We’re looking for two VSFS interns who can help us with projects such as 1) analysis of business, social entrepreneurship, and youth engagement in Africa, with a focus on what's trending on social media, 2) creation of professional social media products (like exciting infographics!) to help us promote YALI, and 3) analysis of publicity around YALI and program alumni.

This position is perfect for someone who wants to combine research/analysis and communications/marketing skills with a dash of passion for international development and Africa.
