Position 1: ICT Development Intern/Volunteer

Among the developmental challenges facing Ghana are illiteracy, lack of ICT and technical skills that disallow them to create job opportunities for themselves.

 

The Ghanaian economy has not got the capacity to absorb all college or high school graduates being churned out every year and as a result, there is mass youth unemployment. The youth lack employable skills to create their own employment. An intern would assist the Bridge Foundation in developing training programs for its clients at the Youth Resource and Training Centre.
