As a Young Expert you get the opportunity to gain experience in an intercultural environment and develop your personal goals for a period of 1 or 2 years. You are employed by a Dutch organisation, and work on a specific project related to either Water, Agrofood and/or Energy in the international development sector. At the same time you receive intensive coaching, and attend training sessions and masterclasses to develop your skills. The training methodology and programme can be found here. As we regularly monitor the results and efficacy of the training programme, this is subject to change. Potential Young Experts can take the self-test to see whether you might be eligible to apply for a Young Expert position.
YEP is open for projects in one of the countries that are eligible for grants from the Dutch Good Growth Fund. If you are a motivated young professional, YEP is a wonderful opportunity to invest in yourself, and to make an impact by working on a project for an extensive period.
