Deadline: April 29th, 2022
Although Africa’s young people are bursting with potential and are incredibly influential, they are among the hardest hit by unemployment and skill shortage. Through our partnership with BeyGOOD, Global Citizen is helping to empower them to reach their full potential, become agents of change, and provide them with skills that will help them alleviate poverty.
If you’re based in Kenya, South Africa, or Nigeria and you’re between the ages of 21 and 25 with a matric or secondary school certificate, you can apply to be part of the fellowship. Applications to join the program are open from now until April 29, 2022.
How to Apply
Send us a two- to three-minute video answering the following questions:
- What qualities do you identify with as an active citizen of the world?
- If selected, what lasting change would you like to achieve through the program?
- What specific socio-economic issues are you taking action on, and why?
If you prefer writing, you can send us a 500- to 700-word essay answering the same questions.
Email your application to firstname.lastname@example.org and include a copy of your ID or passport. You can also send your application using WhatsApp by sending it to +27 64 936 3570.
Keep in mind that applicants from minorities and underrepresented communities are strongly encouraged to apply.
You can read more about the young people who have previously taken part in the fellowship program, the issues they’re passionate about, and about their experiences on the fellowship program here and here.
