Job Title: Study Camp Intern (30 No Experience Jobs)
Organization: Ashinaga Uganda
Duty Station: Kampala, Uganda


About Us:
Ashinaga Africa Initiative (Anglophone and Lusophone) is set to welcome around 30 selected scholars from approximately 30 different countries in Sub-Saharan Africa to our leadership program in Kampala, Uganda. Here, they will receive academic training in their areas of interest and assistance in applying to universities worldwide. Through education, Ashinaga aims to empower these students to bring about the change they wish to see in their communities, countries, and Africa as a whole. These scholars, selected for their academic ability, financial need, and leadership potential, have all lost one or both parents.

Anglophone and Lusophone students will participate in an in-person Study Camp 1 (July – October) and an online Study Camp 2 (October – December), focusing on academic improvement and university applications.

We are seeking a range of interns to support these students during Study Camp 1 (in-person) and Study Camp 2 (online). Interns will assist students in IELTS and SAT exam preparation, essay writing, mathematics, and subject-specific studies. This internship offers a unique opportunity for open-minded and driven individuals to develop their teaching and mentoring skills, engage with innovative pedagogical methods, apply creative problem-solving, and learn about the challenges and possibilities in African education and development.

The students you will work with are mostly soon-to-be university students, aged 18-22.
