The U.S. Fund for UNICEF announces a call for applications for the first class of UNICEF Global Citizenship Fellows, an unprecedented new fellowship program that will unite and empower American youth and volunteers in service on behalf of UNICEF.
The Fund will deploy eight Global Citizenship Fellows throughout the U.S. to serve as grassroots spokespersons for children and bring together networks of faith-based communities, schools, universities, volunteers, advocates, elected leaders and other Americans to unite in service of children around the world.
The Global Citizenship Fund was inspired by the U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s commitment to create a U.S.-based social movement in support of UNICEF’s work for the world’s children. Through U.S. Fund signature initiatives, like Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF and the UNICEF Tap Project, the Fellows will establish UNICEF’s domestic imprint and work to exemplify the concepts of “global citizen” and “community mobilizer.”
In January 2012, the eight Fellows will take on their unique roles as catalysts for positive change and will begin to affect transformational change for children around the world. The fellowship is a highly-competitive, full- time, 13 month program that prepares diverse, committed, and globally-minded individuals for effective leadership in public service.
The U.S. Fund for UNICEF is currently recruiting the most outstanding recent college or graduate school graduates from across the nation to make up the first class of Global Citizenship Fellows, who will be placed in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C.
