Project Description

Would you like to be part of a dynamic diverse team committed to improving education access and outcomes for millions of Congolese students? Do you have a passion for storytelling and communications? Are you creative and interested in innovative solutions? Do you want to learn more about education and international development? Then this position with the USAID/Kinshasa Education Office is a perfect opportunity.

We are looking for a self-starter who is interested in supporting a new initiative to build stronger communications ties between the USAID mission, Washington Headquarters, implementing partners, local stakeholders, and the Congolese public. This would include gathering information on activities, agency priorities, and showcasing our work in new ways to reach the maximum audience. We are interested in innovative communications solutions, including digital and social media.

This internship is conceived as part of a pilot communications project and the intern will be responsible for capturing their progress, reflecting, and adapting as necessary. The project will culminate in the preparation of a summative assessment evaluating program success, lessons learned, and making recommendations for continuation.

The intern will work closely with all members of the education team and the mission communications team, but will report to the Innovation and Learning Advisor.
