Join our team



We are now hiring for our 2018 - 2019 Village Fellows cohort!


The Village Fellows program of the Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village places ~8 international volunteers (“Fellows”) at our site in Rwanda. Fellows spend 12 months living and working in the Village; they are placed into professional roles and work together with Rwandan staff to support existing programs and help develop new systems and programs.
