Eisenhower Fellowships Youth Leadership Network aims youth aged 18 to 25 years to complement the existing Fellow network of dynamic, mid-career change agents. Currently, all Eisenhower Fellows must engage with the global EF network. This includes the commitment to mentoring as part of post-fellowship service to their communities. The Eisenhower Youth Leaders Network deepens EF’s commitment to mentorship as well as support efforts to cultivate the next generation of leaders.
EF expects to create a vibrant global network of the next generation of young leaders over time. The potential for stand-alone global events aimed specifically at youth could be developed, deepening Eisenhower Fellowships as an institution, expanding its base of champions and change agents and amplifying its positive impact on sectors and societies around the world.
Youth Leaders attend a global or regional conference. The Future of Education conference will be the platform for the introduction of the 2020 Cohort in Cartagena, Colombia. Previous groups attended the Future of Work conference in Malaga, Spain, and the Women’s Leadership and European conference held in London last October.
The Eisenhower Youth Leaders benefit from exposure and access to a global network of accomplished leaders in all sectors and from every region of the world. EF connects each young leaders with at least one mentor committing to working with the fellows for a one-year minimum. Post-initiative, EF expects the Eisenhower Youth Leaders to share what they have learned through a project report.
Eisenhower fellows for the Youth Leaders network should represent the countries and regions in the Eisenhower Fellowships network. Further, the candidates must have a record of demonstrated leadership qualities. Moreover, the nominating committee of the Eisenhower Fellowships program seeks candidates from the age group of 18-25 years.
Interested candidates may submit an application describing their experience and accomplishments, as well as how they believe they can serve and lead their communities and peers forward to make the world a better place. Further, the candidates need to articulate a project idea as well. The selection procedure requires all candidates to attend an in-person interview with the selection committee.
