The Society Solutions Program is a leadership development program for people who are aiming at improving their societies by addressing problems concerning the environment, transparency and accountability, women, and gender. Society leaders will be selected to take part of the program that involves:

  • Four-month Fellowship in the USA: Community Solutions fellows are matched with host organizations throughout the USA where they complete a four-month, hands-on professional experience
  • Society Leadership Institute: Society Solutions fellows participate in the Community Leadership Institute, a leadership training program designed to enhance their leadership and management skills. Society-based initiatives: While in the U.S. and with the support of their USA host organization, Society Solutions fellows design and plan a society development initiative or project to carry out after they return home. Once the fellows leave the USA, they put these projects into action in their home societies
