Youth Leadership Trainee
Bagher has joined RTI as the first trainee in our youth leadership scheme. Originally from Afghanistan, he first came into contact with RTI through the youth integration programme that we ran for unaccompanied minors who turn 18. Immediately interested in our work and passionate about helping the refugee community, he came on board in Summer 2018. He speaks Farsi, Dari, English and Greek.
“I really enjoy the friendly and supportive environment at RTI. I have the chance to participate in all the youth projects, learn new things and work with young refugees. I am also gaining work experience and developing leadership skills that will help me to achieve a change in my community. Plus, most of the projects are in English and Greek, so it helps me to practice and develop my language skills. This is the first time that I am in a traineeship; it is great to be working with professionals.”
