The World Bank Junior Professional Programs for Afro-Descendants (JPPAD) is a unique opportunity to gain entry-level professional experience, gaining first-hand exposure to the challenges – and rewards – of international development and poverty reduction.
The primary purpose of JPPAD is two-fold and mutually beneficial:
Participants spend two years in an intensive work program sharing knowledge and acquiring practical, on-the-job skills at one of the world’s leading financial institutions.
As a member of the program, you also will receive professional coaching and supportive training that will enhance existing skills. And you will form valuable personal and professional relationships to last a lifetime.
