Applications are open for the Global Citizen Fellowship Program in Africa 2022. The program unearths the remarkable potential of up to 15 young people in South Africa, Nigeria, and Kenya — with the fellowship launching for the first time in Kenya in 2022 — through a paid, year-long fellowship aligned with one of Global Citizen’s four pillars of activity: creative, policy and campaigns, rewards, and marketing.

The curriculum is designed to equip fellows with the skills and tools they need to thrive — not only during their time with Global Citizen, but also in any future endeavors. The fellows are trained on using digital technology for social change, creating impactful storytelling that shifts attitudes, the importance of building lasting professional relationships, and the role of innovation in a constantly changing world.

The fellowship has a five-phase curriculum with interactive modules that focus on leadership, advocacy, international development, global citizenship, and work readiness. These modules delivered by experts across a range of relevant fields through master classes, experiential learning, mentorship, and learning trips.

Benefits from Global Citizen Fellowship Program

  • Each fellow will receive a work placement within the Global Citizen Africa team — which is based in South Africa and in Nigeria  — where they will have hands-on training through real experience.
  • Finally, fellows will be provided with the skills and resources to help them secure work beyond their time with Global Citizen, giving them the best possible chance of achieving their dreams.

Eligibility for Global Citizen Fellowship Program

  • Open to young South Africans, Nigerians, and Kenyans between the ages of 21 and 25 who have a matric or secondary school certificate, and are available from July 19, 2022, until June 30, 2023, to join the program.
  • Applicants must also be able to house themselves in Johannesburg or Lagos for the duration of the program.
  • Kenyan applicants can be based anywhere in the country, and will participate virtually.
  • Applicants should be able to prove that they are active Global Citizens, either through the work they do in their communities or through Global Citizen’s website or app.
