About About

Young, determined, energetic and connected. These are the qualities of the next generation of leaders all over the world. In the countries in which it works, DOT seeks young graduates from college or university, local youth who have not yet found jobs yet have that spark, that untapped potential, and a strong commitment to their community and country.

Interns are deployed to communities, usually marginalized or rural but with access to ICT, where they work with DOT's network of community-based partners to run ReachUp! workshops to reach hundreds of community beneficiaries in a train-the-trainer model with an impressive multiplier effect. A DOT Intern will reach 100 to 200 fellow youths and community members during her/his engagement. DOT beneficiaries cover all walks of lives - from unemployed street kids who learn how to identify and market their talents, to women's entrepreneur associations who learn market research and business planning, to young people seeking jobs who learn how to use MS Word to construct a CV and use the internet to access job banks, to the entrepreneur seeking to develop a website, a business plan and identify sources of micro-finance.

In TeachUp!, Interns are deployed to schools where they work with teachers and school administrations to help integrate new technology into learning programs as innovation is introduced into the classroom.
