Near Balkans is the regional representative organization for the NEAR protocol in the Balkans.
The Balkans region has long been rife with immense technical and entrepreneurial talent that has largely been unexplored due to a lack of educational programs that aim to foster their prowess in the Web3 realm.
With that in mind, the NEAR team is dedicated to expanding its network and developing the blockchain community in the Balkans using numerous regional educational & grant programs through the newly launched NEAR Balkans Regional Hub.
NEAR Balkans is a regional hub established to provide the local community with the needed tools to successfully build on the NEAR protocol, educate themselves about the technology, expand the NEAR ecosystem, and become eligible for grants to develop their ideas. In addition, the Hub also supports newcomers to enter the Web3 space, and with the latest program - to develop the needed skills to enter the Web3 job market!
Aware of the immense potential and talent of the young community of the Balkans, NEAR Balkans Hub has established a paid summer internship program with the aim of creating Web3 skills that will enable the participants to actively participate in the creation of projects on the NEAR protocol.
This year's Summership will be focused on Web3 ambassadors' development and will take place from June 1st to September 18th, 2022. The NEAR Balkans Summership 2022 will accept 7 Web3 Local Ambassador Interns who will receive a stipend.
During 15 weeks of practice, students will have access to an arsenal of Web3 and NEAR protocol education programs, workshops, certifications, and mentorship spaces for specific fields of your interest, helping you hone your skills and gain relevant Web3 experience. Following this trial experience, fast learners ready to create value within the blockchain arena will receive job opportunities.
Applications are now open and close on Monday, May 23rd.
