About the Role: Visual Storytellers (Content Creation) Internship (Spring 2020)
TYO embraces the value of intercultural exchange in an increasingly globalized world. Over the past 12 years, more than 125 international interns from all walks of life have come to our flagship center in Nablus, Palestine to help strengthen Nablus local refugee communities and similarly vulnerable groups. They have advanced the holistic, intergenerational, person-centered approach at the heart of our community development programs for children, youth, women, and parents.
TYO s International Internship Program offers students, recent graduates, and young professionals a chance to develop their professional and intercultural skills by gaining work experience in a non-profit organization in the Middle East. Interns work full-time for a period of three months in cooperation with TYO local and international staff.
Creativity, fun and positivity are key in all our programs at TYO. We look for people who are curious, humble, empathetic, have unmatched integrity, and a genuine desire and work ethic to make the lives of our community a little better every single day.
