Fully Funded to USA : Apply for this Community Engagement Exchange (CEE) Program 2025

The CEE Programme is an innovative global network that works with communities to address pressing concerns of the twenty-first century. In more than 100 countries, CEE provides committed visionaries with the knowledge, abilities, and tools they need to create multisector approaches and thriving, active communities.

In order to help civil society leaders, ages 21–27, harness the power of networks, relationships, and information for the public good—specifically on issues pertaining to civic discourse and peacebuilding, open and participatory government, women and gender, environmental sustainability, and youth engagement—CEE is a year-long programme that offers transformative leadership development.

Parts of a fellowship consist of:

IREX places CEE fellows with civil society organisations around the country for a three-month practicum. Over the course of a three-month, practical professional practicum, the fellows receive support from peers and designated supervisors.
Leadership and Civic Engagement Academy: CEE fellows use an interactive curriculum that combines professional coaching, in-person instruction, service learning, mentoring, and networking opportunities with a worldwide network to explore the programme themes.

Community involvement Project (CEP): CEE fellows create and organise a community involvement project to be implemented once they return home with the assistance of their mentors and the U.S. host organisation. The fellows implement these projects in their hometowns after leaving the United States.

Community Engagement Project (CEP) Exchange: A limited number of hosts from the United States and CEE specialists will visit a nation where a CEE alumnus has experience, collaborate with them to support the fellow in implementing their project, and then return with insights to enhance communities in the United States or their home country.

Don't miss out on the application deadline which is July 2, 2024.
