CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: HURFORD YOUTH FELLOWS PROGRAM

Building Young Activists’ Leadership Skills 
The World Youth Movement for Democracy and the International Forum for Democratic Studies at the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) invite you to apply for the Hurford Youth Fellows Program in Washington, DC. Youth leaders from around the world will be considered for two positions throughout the year. For a period of four months, each fellow will have the opportunity to build his or her leadership and organizational skills and benefit from and contribute to the development of the World Youth Movement.
A project developing online discussion to generate active engagement among youth activists around the world will be central to each fellowship.  Hurford Youth Fellows will engage in strategic meetings; conduct research; and organize and lead presentations, online discussions and information-sharing sessions on key democracy issues that they will identify in consultation with the World Movement Secretariat. Fellows will identify, compile, present, and creatively share discussion materials and results.
Youth leaders up to the age of 30 with a demonstrated interest in the advancement of democracy are welcome to apply; particularly those affiliated with democracy/civil society organizations are especially encouraged. A monthly cost of living stipend and roundtrip airfare will be provided by the Program.
For more information and application materials, please visit MoveDemocracy.org. 
Additional information can be located in the Fellowship Booklet.
The Hurford Youth Fellows Program is made possible by the generous support of the Hurford Foundation.
