Applications are open for African Civic Engagement Academy (ACEA) 2021. The African Civic Engagement Academy (ACEA) is a free online training program and networking opportunity offered to selected mid-career NGO and public sector leaders across sub-Saharan Africa. The Academy is intended for mid-career individuals with demonstrated leadership experience in NGO, non-profit, or public sector roles. Space is limited and applications are competitive.

Participants will also be exposed to leadership development and strategic planning concepts. All participants will develop a peer-mentored Civic Engagement Action Plan, where they identify steps to bring a civic engagement project to life in their community or government unit.


Selected participants will receive online instruction and participate in peer discussions organized into three short courses:

  • Principles of Civic Engagement, including strategies for NGO, non-profit, and government sector leaders to advocate and engage with one another.
  • Political Inclusion, covering steps that can be taken to improve the political and social inclusion of underrepresented communities.
  • Media Management, including the role of old and new media as a bridge between government and civil society.


  • Participants who successfully complete the ACEA coursework and submit a Civic Engagement Action Plan will receive a Certificate of Completion from the University of Georgia which may be displayed as a digital badge.


  • Be between the ages of 30 and 45 as of January 1, 2021.
  • Serve in a leadership role with a civil society organization (including NGOs and non-profit community organizations) or a government unit responsible for engaging with the public.
  • Have a demonstrated record of leading civic engagement efforts, including projects and programs to advocate, engage, and communicate in an inclusive way.
