John Smith Centre launch minority ethnic emerging leaders programme
Our John Smith Centre has launched their Minority Ethnic Emerging Leaders programme, a fantastic professional and personal development opportunity for minority ethnic people between 18 and 29 across Scotland.
Funded by the Scottish Government, the programme will provide young people with a part-time paid internship for nine months with a public/voluntary sector organisation, an NGO, or with a politician.
Participants will develop a range of workplace skills along with a national living wage equivalent grant, a mentor, and access to networking and employability opportunities.
Organisations taking part in the programme include the Scottish Government, Shelter Scotland, Save the Children, and Unicef.
