Want to go to Africa???

Hello Grassroot Soccer supporters!

Interested in kick-starting a career in public health? Ever imagined spending a year living and working in an African country? Want to play a part in the fight against one of the greatest tragedies of our lifetime? Having a hard time finding a job in this market?

Grassroot Soccer is seeking applicants for its 2009/2010 Intern Program. Interns play a crucial role in several key departments within GRS, and are an important part of an organization at the cutting edge of HIV/AIDS prevention in Africa.

We are seeking qualified candidates with backgrounds or coursework in public health, business administration, education, and related fields. Prior non-profit or public health experience helpful, but not required. College degree required. No prior experience playing or coaching soccer is required. The Internship is a volunteer position. GRS provides housing/accommodation but Interns pay their own expenses. Positions begin August 1, 2009.

Please email [email protected] to ask for an application, and go to to learn more about the GRS Intern program.

(And if you can't commit to going to Africa, check out for other ways to get involved!!!!)
