This summer, the Global Education Office will be hiring 5 interns to help develop and implement the Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program on campus at VCU from June 26 – August 6, 2011. Program Leaders serve a strategic role in the development and implementation of this unique, cross-cultural experience. Through personal interactions, Program Leaders identify the interests and needs of Iraqi students, develop responsive action plans, and work with other Program Leaders and the Director to facilitate positive interactions between Iraqis and the VCU and Richmond communities.
