Greetings from Nablus!
Tomorrow's Youth Organization is recruiting highly qualified and motivated interns interested in community development, early childhood and youth programming, and conflict resolution to work at our flagship center in Nablus (West Bank, Palestine) for our spring programs (February - April 2011).
TYO Interns will work full-time in cooperation with TYO local and international staff. Interns will create spring programs for children, youth and adults from refugee camps and other marginalized areas of the Nablus community. Each intern will develop and implement their own creative curriculum(s) through the spring, documenting development growth/gains in their class and in their participants, as well as informally acting as a liaison between TYO and the local community.
Spring programs may include after-school classes in sports, drama, art, evening English classes, and weekend recreational activities. Also, there are opportunities to collaborate with other organizations in Nablus as well as on grant-funded projects, at the TYO Center, in the areas of intercultural dialogue, photography/painting and micro-finance projects for women.
Full description and application instructions are attached or on Idealist. The application is due November 21, 2010. Please apply and/or forward widely!!
I hope to see you in Nablus!
