INTERNSHIP & MENTORSHIP PROGRAMME

Kickstart your career in humanitarian aid and development

Women not only remain underrepresented in leadership roles, but they are disadvantaged in the path to attaining them; as women’s careers progress, their representation declines, along with their opportunities in the sector.

Our Programme aims to engage young women interested in aid, development and gender equality. Working with women of diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds to provide tangible experience and mentorship opportunities to enable successful career development.

With an ultimate goal of fostering youth development and new talent into the workforce – specifically in the aid and development sector.
When I was accepted for an internship at CTG, I was so excited. Here was a dynamic group of people to work with and all open to teach me on how to improve my skills and performance; this really motivated me and shaped my career.

For those still in fulltime education work experience opportunities are provided which last from one to two weeks.

WHY DO WE MENTOR?

To ensure an organized learning experience for Interns, CTG assigns a Mentor for each intern. This makes the interns’ tasks and roles well-defined and customized to fit each intern’s professional progress.

WHY FEMALE?

According to the World Bank, only 21.8 percent of the labour force was female in 2016. We believe that creating valuable experience for female interns will increase the chances of women finding full-time employment. Committed to SDG 5 Gender Equality, we’re actively trying to help close the gender gap through our Female First initiative.
