Applications for the Karekin Njdeh Future Leaders Program are now available online. The comprehensive internship program is an excellent opportunity to gain experience in the fields of public administration and public relations, while learning about strategic planning, human resource management, program development, social media advertising, and political activism.
Through the Karekin Njdeh internship program, the AYF is paving the way for young Armenians to advance themselves and their nation, says AYF member and former internship coordinator Niree Kodaverdian.
Ideal candidates are outstanding high school or college students with a strong interest in social issues, excellent research skills, and possess the ability to complete assignments in a timely manner. During the 6-week long internship, participants are given an inside look at the AYF, gaining experience in working for a non-profit organization, leading projects, and compiling research. Interns also partake in a lecture series, unique outings, and various career building workshops.
Interns will also be assigned a personally-tailored final project which they will present at a closing ceremony at the conclusion of their internship. The final project is designed around the interns career goals, with the intent of helping advance the Armenian Cause.
Participants in the Karekin Njdeh Future Leaders Program not only gain leadership skills, but expand their network, boost their resume, and receive a certificate of completion.
Interested students should email their completed application form, resume, and brief personal statement to email@example.com by April 15th.
