Working Worldwide Alumni Spotlight:

Cade Martin, a 2019-20 Working Worldwide Kosovo participant who worked at the Kosovo Rehabilitation Centre for Torture Victims (KRCT), shares his experiences living and working in Kosovo:

"Living and working in Kosovo for the past year was an incredible opportunity. Reflecting back on my experience now I feel especially thankful for the chance to learn from the diverse perspectives and experiences of my coworkers and friends in the country. Kosovo is a complicated place. It’s a young country with a rich history that continues to undergo major societal developments—this unique combination made it an especially rewarding place to be able to contribute to a local organization. 

Kosovo is an extraordinary country in which to live and work, and if you’re looking for the opportunity to develop a greater understanding of the Balkans and of intercultural relations, Working Worldwide might be perfect for you!"
