JOB DESCRIPTION – Junior Program Manager

WELCOME TO OUR COMMUNITY

We believe that bottom-up innovation is the key to development and the creation of a better future for Rwanda and for the world. We are passionate about bringing together entrepreneurs, creatives, and all drivers of positive social change. We envision Impact Hub Kigali as the center of the social enterprise community in Kigali. With our community workspace, countless events and impactful innovation programs, we believe we will all become greater than our collective individual parts.

WHAT WE DO

Impact Hubs catalyze a vibrant community, meaningful content, and an inspiring space to help you move from intention to impact. While every Impact Hub offers a collaborative space and supportive working environment, each has its own unique local flavor. Impact Hubs are curators of physical and virtual work and social spaces designed to help materialize your vision for a better world–offering a unique mix of infrastructure, connections, inspiration, and learning for people who want to move their ideas from intention to impact.

Impact Hub Kigali provides three distinct elements:

➔ A physical space that offers a flexible infrastructure to work, meet, learn and
connect
➔ Countless events facilitating connections, inspiring and fostering social
innovation
➔ Innovation programs to support entrepreneurs and build an innovation ecosystem
