Recruiting Organization: The Leo Project

Started in 2018, The Leo Project provides supportive services, creative outlets, and opportunities not traditionally available to the most vulnerable youth and their families in Nanyuki, Kenya. Our resource center provides our 4,000+ beneficiaries with access to computers, coding, art, music, trauma counseling, financial literacy, mindfulness, a library and tutoring. We are piloting, implementing and sustaining these services as a means to unite, empower and - most importantly - heal the community and drive social change. Our second initiative is a community health clinic which will focus on maternal and child care, providing free and low-cost outpatient services to surrounding communities.

The Leo Project is seeking an intern to support the project manager and assist with research, administration tasks and data entry and analysis. The ideal candidate is organised, proactive and has an understanding of the global health and development space. Once we have found the ideal candidate, we will tailor an internship to meet your specific needs and availability. This experience will boost your resume and enhance the skills that you have learned in college or graduate school, and help prepare for your future career in public health. This is an incredible opportunity for someone looking for experience in the global health, and international non-profit space.

Job Location: Remote but, the candidate will also have the option to travel to Nanyuki, Kenya and stay at The Leo Project where room, board and a monthly stipend would be provided.
