The Young Professionals in Development (YPD) is a joint high-level traineeship programme of IBF Foundation and ICA World.
The programme aims to give selected university students and recent graduates a practical, field experience on donor-funded projects in beneficiary countries in the Global South, implemented by one or more member organisations of ICA World.
As of February 2024, we are planning to offer a 6-month traineeship programme on a yearly basis to a group of 10 outstanding young professionals.
The programme aims to cover all costs of the traineeship (travel, accommodation, other living expenses) and will be financed through different funding schemes.
