(English) Project Assistant Internship at ThinkYoung in Brussels
After my Social Policy studies in Vilnius University, I decided to get more practical experience abroad.
Working in project management field was always really interesting for me and I thought it could be a great opportunity to get more knowledge in a non- profit think-tank in Brussels. ThinkYoung is doing a lot of interesting projects which I had a chance to be part of. Besides that, the organisation is making documentaries, organizing conferences and doing researches related with youth policies in Europe.
The whole experience was really diverse, challenging and motivating. I was responsible for setting deadlines, communication regarding some needs for the project and logistics. On top of that, I was constantly going to conferences in the European Parliament, where I could learn a lot of new things about nowadays political changes and needs. The atmosphere in the organisation was great and my coworkers were lovely, interesting and helpful people.
I’m really glad that I had the opportunity to do an internship in Brussels. I gained a lot of experience work wise, met really great and interesting people and got to know more about Belgium in general.
