Fully Funded Concern Worldwide’s National NGO Program is being organized on Humanitarian Leadership.
Concern Worldwide is organizing this program, in consortium with International Medical Corps (IMC) and the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI) and with technical support from Johns Hopkins University’s Bloomberg School of Public Health. This National NGO Program on Humanitarian Leadership (NNPHL), was formerly the Program on Humanitarian Leadership(PHL). The Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) is funding this program.
NNPHL is a five-month leadership training program. The program utilizes innovative pedagogies to combine a rigorous academic curriculum with practical experiential learning including mentorship as well as individual assignments. Moreover, NNPHL is specifically for exceptional humanitarian professionals working for non-governmental or community-based organizations in humanitarian settings. Furthermore, the ideal participant will aspire to take on decision-making and management responsibilities in the humanitarian sector. In addition, it will provide participants with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to take on leadership responsibilities within a variety of humanitarian organizations. Above all, the program focuses on improving the delivery of services to those in need of humanitarian assistance.
NNPHL will cover the costs of participation in the regionally-based, NNPHL leadership training courses (i.e., course fees, visa fee, round-trip flight to the in-person training location, accommodation and meals during the in-person training only).
