Young Professionals Program
The Young Professionals Program (YPP) is a starting point for careers at the Inter-American Development Bank. The program is designed for exceptionally qualified and motivated Young Professionals.
The IDB seeks candidates with experience in areas which will support our institutional priorities: social policy for equity and productivity, infrastructure and institutions for growth, competitiveness and social welfare, competitive regional and global international integration, food security, environment, climate change and renewable energies.
The IDB is committed to promoting diversity and views greater representation of diverse groups at the Bank, including people of African descent and Indigenous Peoples, as integral to its activities with governments and civil society. Therefore, Afro-descendants and Indigenous Peoples are encouraged to apply using the Diversity Young Professional application (DYP).
The Young Professionals Program is no longer receiving applications (until May 2014). Applicants to the 2013 competition selected for interviews have been notified, selection will take place early November of an entrance on duty mid-January 2014.
