DOT Interns are college and university graduates who provide technology, business, and skills training opportunities to people in their own communities.

DOT Rwanda Interns are recruited from local universities and colleges. They receive intensive training in facilitation, coaching, mentoring, technology, and communication skills, and are placed in communities they are familiar with to deliver DOT Rwanda's programs.

During and after their 9-month internship, the young people who deliver DOT Rwanda's programs gain essential 21st century workforce readiness skills through on-the-job experience and ongoing professional development.

DOT Rwanda Interns create their own strong peer networks during their DOT experience and they maintain access to a large online community made up of thousands of past and present Interns, where they can continue to engage in professional development, learning and networking opportunities.

"It all starts with an evaluation of strengths that people have within. This exercise helps them acknowledge their inner capacity and build self esteem. With this, Gilbert, one of my participants, realized that he is social, approachable, and a good communicator. These characteristics will help him provide good customer care services once he starts a business." -Eric Rukundo, DOT Intern
