Community Engagement and Exchange (CEE) Program applications from October 26 through November 30
November 2, 2022

The Community Engagement and Exchange (CEE) Program will accept application for young changemakers from October 26 through November 30, 2022. CEE is a bold civil society program sponsored by ECA and supported in its implementation by IREX that connects a dynamic global network of innovators working with communities to address critical 21st Century issues. CEE equips dedicated visionaries with the expertise, skills, and resources to develop multisector approaches and build healthy and engaged communities in over 100 countries.

A transformational leadership development experience, CEE is a year-long program designed to enable civil society leaders, ages 21-28, to harness the power of networks, relationships, and information for the public good, specifically on issues related to civic dialogue and peacebuilding, open and participatory government, women and gender, resilience and sustainable development, and youth engagement.

Upon return to their home countries after 3 months in the U.S., with the help of their host organization and mentors, CEE fellows design and plan a community engagement project to carry out in their home communities.
