Fully Funded Community Engagement Exchange Programme in the USA

Civil society leaders aged 20-27 from around the world are invited to participate in a year-long exchange program in the US. Finalists will be placed in a civil society organisation and have all their expenses covered. The deadline is on Wednesday 23rd December 2020.

The Community Engagement Exchange (CEE) Programme is a global network of innovators working with communities to address critical 21st Century issues.

CEE equips dedicated visionaries with the expertise, skills, and resources to develop multi-sector approaches and build healthy and engaged communities in over 100 countries. 

CEE is a year-long program designed to enable civil society leaders, ages 20-27, to harness the power of networks, relationships, and information for the public good, specifically on issues related to civic dialogue and peace building.

The fellowship includes a three-month placement in a US civil society organisation. Participants also explore the programme themes through interactive curriculum that includes service-learning, face-to-face training, mentorship, professional coaching, and inclusion in a global network.

With the help of their US host organisation and mentors, CEE fellows design and plan a community engagement project to carry out after they return home.

Once the fellows depart the US, they put these projects into action in their home communities.

The program covers the cost of most expenses associated with J-1 visa support, round-trip travel from participants’ home city to the US, monthly allowance to cover housing, meals, and other living expenses, and accident and sickness insurance.

The deadline is on Wednesday 23rd December 2020.
