The Hurford Youth Fellowship Program, facilitated by the World Movement for Democracy, seeks emerging democratic leaders from around the world who are committed to building their leadership skills, enhancing their organizational talents, and harnessing their potential. Through the Hurford program, two young activists will spend four months at the World Movement’s Secretariat office in Washington, D.C., where they will expand their global network, learn lessons from activists involved in democracy movements around the world, and contribute to the development of the World Movement for Democracy and the World Youth Movement for Democracy.
Hurford Youth Fellows will conduct research, organize presentations and online discussions, as well as information-sharing sessions on key democracy issues. A project completed by the Fellows will be publicized and shared globally.
The fellowship is open to applicants no older than 30 years of age from any country. Additional information and the Hurford Youth Fellow applications can be found here. Applications will be accepted until April 17, 2017.
