TakingITGlobal is looking for motivated, creative and outgoing young people for our Community Connector team! If you're interested in youth engagement in the online environment, gaining experience in online media and working in a high-energy community, this could be your ideal placement. An internship with TIG is a great opportunity for young students to become personally involved in our international organization and to play a role in inspiring, informing and involving other young people around the world. This internship gives you a chance to affect change and get involved in your local community, strengthening youth networks and mobilizing youth to participate in their local area.


The Community Connector Internship is a six-month position, starting in mid-August 2008 and ending in mid-February 2009 for a weekly rate of 5-8 working hours. It is an unpaid Internship, but will afford the opportunity to gain valuable experience working within an international NGO, using Web 2.0 tools to engage youth, and making connections with local groups and organizations.


For more information or to receive an application package, please contact Chiara Camponeschi, Multilingual Programs Manager, at chiara@takingitglobal.org


PLEASE NOTE: The application forms for this position will be available in June 2008, while the actual hiring process will begin in July 2008.



TakingITGlobal (www.takingitglobal.org) is an international organization - led by youth and enabled by technology. TakingITGlobal connects youth to inspiration, information and involvement in their local and global communities. Headquartered in Toronto, Canada, with a growing worldwide presence, the organization's flagship program is TakingITGlobal.org (www.takingitglobal.org), the most popular online community for young people interested in connecting across cultures and making a difference, with hundreds of thousands of visitors each month. Through both our online community, TakingITGlobal.org, and our offline programming, we strive to:

• Develop the capacity of youth as stakeholders and decision makers in their global and local communities.

• Foster cross-cultural dialogue and understanding.

• Increase both action and awareness among youth around global issues.


TakingITGlobal also works with global partners – from UN agencies, to major companies, and especially youth organizations – in order to build the capacity of youth for development, support youth artistic and media expression, make education more engaging, and involve young people in global decision-making.


The Community Connector Internship is part of a 6-month engagement project developed by TakingITGlobal with the aim of providing our members with more opportunities for personal and professional development.
