The Young Professionals Program (YPP) targets motivated and talented individuals under thirty-two (32) years of age, who are committed to African development, have demonstrated outstanding academic and professional achievements, and have demonstrated effective team work as well as leadership potential.
The African Development Bank (AfDB) hires approximately twenty young professionals each year. Young Professionals (YP) complete a mandatory minimum of two years and maximum of three years on rotational assignments in different organizational units and sectors within the Bank. YPs will undergo on-the-job training and mentoring that will equip them with skills, knowledge and experience to address developmental issues in Africa in particular and the developing world in general. Upon successful completion of the program, the YPs will be equipped to compete for any relevant job vacancies in the AfDB.

Vivement que cela soit bien suivi et que les jeunes qui seront retenus profitent à bon escient des formations et des rotations qui auront.
En attendant d'avoir mon domaine (Informatique et NTIC) pris en compte dans un prochain PJP, je souhaite bonne chance et beaucoup de courage aux jeunes qui seront retenus.
Cordialement à tous!
c'est une aubaine pour l'ensemble des jeunes du continent soucieux du déveloloppement du continent
