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.
