The World Bank has been featured on this site before as an organization with opportunities for policy minded people. We featured their Junior Professional Associates Program in a previous entry and we just became aware of another opportunity through the World Bank Youth 2 Youth Community (Y2Y). Y2Y is sponsoring an essay competition on youth entrepreneurship. The focus on the essay is to elaborate on the following questions:
What are the constraints to youth entrepreneurship in your country? Has the global crisis changed the dynamics? How can governments help young entrepreneurs to create and further develop their social and productive ventures?
Full details on the competition can be found on the Y2Y Web site. The deadline to apply is September 22nd. Winning a competition like this certainly would look good on a résumé submitted as part of SIPA application . . .
