About

Early 2018 we are launching the inaugural cohort of our year-long program called "The Ajira Experience". This innovative program uses a new model of cooperative education combining experiential learning and hands-on professional experience. That means the entire Ajira Experience is 12 months long, eleven of those the fellow/participant undergoes full time apprenticeship and the other one month is utilized for week-long quaterly intensive learning bootcamps and educational tours in four different East African countries. In this program, a fellow exits with 11 months of professional experience, receives quarterly feedback from the host organization that is then used for coaching sessions to set goals, monitor growth and set the way forward.

Those amongst other components of our program basically package a young graduate to become a highly effective , adaptable and productive employee . Fellows graduating from the Ajira Experience are therefore better placed not just to compete in today's demanding job market but also ready to positively impact the organizations that employ them because they embody skills, experience, values and virtue that pushes them to always pursue what we call "restless excellence" at the work workplace and in all they do.

With that in mind, the volunteers we are looking for will therefore support the program in different ways i.e to conduct digital marketing, to design learning experiences, to coordinate learning bootcamps logistics, source for key partnerships, raise funds for the scholarship program.... Those are amongst among the many other roles that our volunteers will play and we believe that they will not just get the fulfillment of launching this success story but also learn a number of skills along the way.
