About Oakwood Interns Program

The mission of the Oakwood Interns’ program is to provide a platform through which educated youths can attain professional skills and relevant work experience in order to competently and confidently enter the formal job market and self-employment.
Our overall goal is to enhance youth employability in Uganda through strategic trainee placements that match the knowledge, skills and passions of our youth members.
