AEC Launches Energy Pioneers Program: A Pan-African Internship Plan

The AEC Energy Pioneers Program ( is the Chamber’s first-of-its-kind internship program designed to provide quality opportunities to individuals, promoting continuous learning and growth.

Through this internship program, participants are exposed to the day and life of professionals within the energy sector, working hand-in-hand with these seasoned and reputable professionals.

The Chamber has always been and continues to be a strong advocate for promoting development, to ultimately empower the youth in advancing within the industry.

Being a paid internship program, we also want candidates to know that, through personal investment and hardship, a reward is always waiting at the end of the effort provided.

In a highly competitive world, it takes more than qualifications to secure quality positions, it takes exposure too.

The Chamber aims to provide just that – a platform that allows for continued learning while availing a structured space where participants engage, learn and explore the industry with experienced professionals guiding them along the way.

Gaining industry experience has significant benefits for graduates entering the work environment.

Instead of rushing to secure a job that may not even suit the individual, considering an internship may very well be a lit candle in the dark.

Internship programs are valuable as they offer the chance to develop new skills and present opportunities that would not emerge otherwise.

Besides the technical knowledge gained from within any industry, interns also learn how to interact with professionals in a workplace setting, and develop essential soft skills such as time management, organizational skills, adaptability, problem-solving as well as teamwork.

The AEC Energy Pioneers Program ( is designed not only for the accomplishment of great work, with the chance to learn and grow; this is also an opportunity for working professionals to share their experience and culture of diverse community connection, with the interns, molding them into future independent professionals with a clear path to follow.
