The Resilience Academy Internship Program exposes hundreds of students annually to industrial training. Under the guidance of the engagement managers, students learn conceptual and practical data collection and management skills combined with workplace skills on community engagement and mapping.

Each year we conduct University student internship programs for eight weeks where students aquire theoretical skills then participate in practial activities that aims to increase their practical and digital skills. Experts from our partner Universities are motivated to coordinate interns program each year in order to help youth develop their necesary skills


The interns engage 50 students from each university partner (UDSM, ARU, SUZA, and SUA) and a few additional students from other Tanzanian universities to make the total of 200+ students.


The skills developed under the Internship program depends on the theme being focused involve mapping of different features for urban development.


For the Internship Program, we have worked together with OpenMap Development Tanzania, Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team for Dar es Salaam and Spatial Collective in Zanzibar.
