Who are we ?

The Junior Programme is an opportunity for young professionals to work in the field and contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

We offer them a professional field experience in a development project of a Belgian development cooperation player.

This experience is based on our values of citizenship, professionalism and personal development.

This Programme is managed by BTC, the Belgian development agency.
