ABOUT YESSF

AMIDEAST is pleased to announce the Yemen Emergency Student Support Fund (YESSF), established for Yemeni citizens on F-1 visas currently enrolled at an accredited U.S. institution of higher education. Funds are available to help cover living expenses, books, and some institutional costs for Yemeni students whose financial status has been directly impacted by the current crisis in Yemen.

Internship Program

Applications are not currently being accepted for this program in Sana'a. In Aden, applications are accepted on an as-needed basis. Announcements about opportunities for this program will be made on Facebook: www.facebook.com/AMIDEASTYemen

The AMIDEAST/Yemen Internship Program is designed to give university students and recent graduates (priority will be given to those who graduated less than than two years before the date of application) an opportunity to gain relevant work experience in a professional environment. Interns have the opportunity to work in one of many areas offered by this program, gaining experience in the use of the English language as well as developing administrative skills. The minimum commitment is six months, and preference is given to those who have strong English skills and no prior work experience. Each intern is given a pre-determined assignment and workspace, which vary according to the individual’s skills and interests and the nature of his/her assignment. Interns are supervised directly by a staff member and are under the overall coordination and mentorship of the Internship Program Coordinator. In addition, interns are also offered a fifty percent discount on English Language instruction at AMIDEAST, with many interns pursuing English classes alongside their internship commitment.

This program is offered in both AMIDEAST/Yemen offices in Aden and Sana’a, though each program is tailored to fit the needs of each locale. Serving as an intern is an exciting training and work experience that will enhance one’s professional and language skills, opening doors for future employment.

How to apply:

Applications for AMIDEAST Yemen internships are accepted on an as-needed, basis, and announcements about vacancies will be made on AMIDEAST Yemen's social media pages. Please note: only applications submitted online will be accepted.
