Engineers Without Borders is accepting applications for the 2013 Junior Fellowship program. We’re looking for students with problem solving skills, an entrepreneurial attitude, and a commitment to learning, and who are returning to school in 2013 – 2014. You don’t need to be in Engineering, and previous overseas experience is not required.
There are any number of programs designed to help you develop “leadership skills”. The Junior Fellowship by EWB Canada isn’t one of them. It is:
Six months of preparation in the most advanced, immersive learning environment in Canada.
Four months leading change in Africa within EWB’s systemic change ventures.
Eight months of leadership back in Canada, tapping into a global network of social innovators.
As a Junior Fellow you’ll be working at the intersection of poverty, systemic change, innovation, and education, an experience that will open doors to experiences and insights you can’t even imagine yet. You’ll gain the knowledge, perspective, and understanding that you need to better define your world and how you want to change it. It’s learning to lead, and leading to learn, all while creating positive, systemic change that unlocks human potential. And the entire experience is free – the EWB USask Chapter will help you fundraise to cover the costs. We don’t believe that money should be an obstacle to skills development for young, talented leaders focused on social change.
For more information visit juniorfellow.ewb.ca, email Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org, or come by Browsers to chat with one of USask’s past Junior Fellows on Thursday from 12 – 1:30, Friday from 1:30 – 3, or next Tuesday (Oct 23) from 3 – 5.
Applications are due Friday, October 26th and can be found at juniorfellow.ewb.ca
