Three opportunities for Rwandan university graduates

In a pool of thousands of university students that graduate each year in Rwanda, it might often be hard for newly graduates to find employment opportunities in a tight job market. There are however alternatives to work opportunities that recent graduates can leverage.

These opportunities range from volunteership, competitions to internships. These opportunities can help young people build experience and get exposed.

Apply for the CorpsAfrica/Rwanda Volunteership

CorpsAfrica Volunteers undergo one month of Pre-Service Training and then serve for ten months in a community chosen for its perceived need, existence of local partners and essential infrastructure, location, and other criteria. The Volunteer dedicates his/her time to living and working with local people to identify an area of concern for the community, co-create and design solutions to address the concern, implement the solutions with local partners, and monitor and evaluate the results. To achieve this, CorpsAfrica Volunteers receive professional training before and during their service, support from CorpsAfrica staff (both nationally and internationally), a modest living allowance, health insurance, and a readjustment allowance upon successful completion of the program. Volunteers are required to submit reports and make presentations regularly.
