IEMed Mediterranean Traineeship Program

Application Deadline: October 26, 2021

We strongly believe that young people drive ideas and are key to promote social change, innovation, dialogue and positive engagement of communities across the Euro-Mediterranean region, founded on a culture of mutual trust, tolerance, understanding and respect. Therefore, the purpose of our Mediterranean Traineeship Program is to empower, mentor and develop the future generations of leaders in sectors and areas that align with our mission by fostering their skills and capabilities and their understanding of trends and challenges in the region.

Continuous learning and development are the backbones of every personal and professional success. Our program is directed at young people passionate about Euro-Mediterranean relations, striving for excellence, and willing to broaden their knowledge and skills in their specific areas of competence. The program has two primary goals: to enable young graduates to put into practice knowledge acquired during studies in several areas of competence, including Euro-Mediterranean policies, the Arab world, gender, socio-economic and human development, culture and civil society, project management, communication, as well as to empower, mentor and equip young people with practical skills and experience of the day-to-day work of an organization working in the field of Euro-Mediterranean relations, helping youth to find their successful way on the labor market (or – thus ensuring their employment success).

Since 2010, over 90 young people from 10 countries have completed our program. Our alumni are making a transformational impacts nationally and internationally holding public offices, working at European institutions, producing knowledge in research institutes and think tanks, and mobilizing actors at civil society organizations and the private sector.
