Generation Education, take your internship abroad!
Over the years, SB OverSeas has expanded, taken on new projects and ideas to develop our programmes on the ground in both Brussels and in Lebanon. With a focus on remedial education for our beneficiaries; children, adults, women and men. SB OverSeas has invited motivated individuals, passionate about education, to volunteer in our centres and take part of an educational movement, by raising awareness about different issues and bringing hope that change could and would be achieved. Since then, we have welcomed over 250 international volunteers from all walks of life and all across the globe.
In Brussels, we have expanded our volunteer programme to students and working professionals from all nationalities. We have also been working closely with universities, providing students internships at our Brussels office and offering them the opportunity to apply their skills in an international environment both in Europe via our programmes.
After years of experience with our volunteer programme and hosting interns in our Brussels office, we are pleased to announce the start of our Lebanon Internship Programme starting in January 2020 at two of our education & empowerment centres in Lebanon. These internship positions are catered to individuals who are eager to develop their teaching skills as well as put into practice additional skills or interests in the field of communications and marketing, project development, empowerment development, child protection, and teaching and education.
We are offering a 3-part programme in which interns will teach in our centres so that they fully understand the challenges of daily work, what improvements can be made, and develop projects that increase learning. Interns will have their own set of tasks, responsibilities, and a supervisor on the ground whom will follow their projects that reflect their chosen role. The internship also includes an Arabic language course that helps elevate the interns ability to communicate in classrooms, immerse quicker into the community, and gain Arabic proficiency, a vital skill in the international field.
Interns now have the opportunity to take their internships abroad, working in an international humanitarian field and networking with key players in the world of non-profit and non-governmental organizations. The programme has been designed to enhance the interns professional and personal development as they receive hands on experience in the humanitarian field, apply their skills to projects outside of the classrooms, and get a taste of what it is like to work on an international level.
If you or anyone you know is interested in taking their internship abroad, honing new skills, or changing career paths into the humanitarian field, please head to our website where you can read our brochures for more details and apply online.
So what are you waiting for? Take a leap, join our new movement of Generation Education and bring meaning to your internship!
