2024 YouthMappers Leadership Fellowship

The YouthMappers network invites undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled in any field at an institution of higher education with an official YouthMappers chapter in good-standing to apply to join the 2024 YouthMappers Leadership Fellowship cohort.

YouthMappers will provide selected students with knowledge, skills, and technical training in open mapping techniques to help build leadership capacity and enrich their chapter activities. Students will have access to pre-departure sessions, mentoring by international experts throughout the fellowship, and the opportunity to engage in an online community with the other participants after the workshop.

Fellows will be expected to return to their home chapters and implement activities based upon the knowledge, skills, or capacity learned during the workshop. Activities may be tailored to the needs of their home chapter, including conducting leadership seminars, installing leadership transition plans, launching data collection efforts to fight climate impacts, initiating gender programming, developing allyship support, offering technical workshops, or many other options to be determined after the summit. They will then be expected to report back to YouthMappers through the submission of a blog detailing their experiences.
