Commitment to Action

Leveraging Emerging Leaders and Educators for Peace

Commitment by

Seeds of Peace

In 2015, Seeds of Peace committed to launching two fellowship programs to provide 60 young professionals and educators, half of whom are women, from across the Middle East with leadership training over three years. Both of these fellowship programs are designed to provide young professionals and educators from across the Middle East with leadership training, mentorship, support for community action projects, and opportunities to convene with a group of high-performing peers. Fellows will receive stipends, skills training, and participation in incubators that focus on developing their projects. Upon completion of the program, the fellows will return to their communities, prepared to share their work and help build out the space for innovative entrepreneurship in their societies.
