Dear YSEALI Members,
We are pleased to be continuing the YSEALI partnership with Green School and are announcing a call for applications for a 6-month internship opportunity that is related to every one of the YSEALI themes!
The Green School http://www.greenschool.org/, located in central Bali is a primary and secondary school that has an environmentally focused curriculum and an environmentally sustainable campus. This innovative institution is globally recognized as a leading model for how to educate young people in an environmentally sustainable way that will also benefit the local community. It’s the perfect place for YSEALI members to get hands-on experience in conserving the environment, social entrepreneurship, economic development, education, and civic engagement.
There are four enterprises at the Green School that have been in place for some time on campus. This internship would be an opportunity to use your ecopreneuriship, civic engagement, and education knowledge to help make them full, self-sustaining social enterprises. They each involve Green School students to varying degrees, but the School wants dedicated, innovative, energetic YSEALI project managers and entrepreneurs to help make them more successful, more integrated into the community, and better drivers of environmentally sustainable practices.
These Green School enterprises are:
• Kembali – More than a recycling center, Kembali is a Zero Waste initiative helping the local village become the greenest village in Bali
• BioBus – An alternative transportation and fuels initiative that has three busses running on bio diesel and is looking to grow into supporting use of used-cooking oil bio diesel around Bali, Indonesia, and the World
• The Green School Shop – Working to create economic opportunity in the local villages to supply sustainable products for our gift shop, and to supply opportunities for students to develop products as well.
• Kul Kul Connection – A community outreach program that teaches English to 250 local children and offers opportunities for starting mini-enterprises. This intern position would specifically be to support middle and high school Indonesian students in starting their entrepreneurial endeavors.
WE HAVE A SHORT DEADLINE.
If you have entrepreneurial and environmental skills and goals and want to get experience making a difference in your community, please fill out the online application form at bit.ly/YSEALIGreenSchool2017 by 7:59 a.m. WIB, Wednesday, June 7th.
