National Endowment for Democracy Hurford Youth Fellows Program
The World Youth Movement for Democracy is a network that aims to support the development of sustainable democracy movements by empowering the next generation of democracy activists. The National Endowment for Democracy Hurford Youth Fellows Program in Washington, D.C. gives youth leaders from around the world the opportunity to build their leadership and organizational skills and benefit from and contribute to the development of the World Youth Movement for Democracy.
Central to each four month fellowship will be an assignment to develop online discussion platforms that would generate active engagement of World Youth Movement members. Each fellow will organize and lead a series of online discussions and information sharing on a key democracy issue.
Youth leaders up to the age of 30 with a demonstrated interest in the advancement of democracy are welcome to apply; 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.
