Program description: 

The Lazord partners are pleased to announce the opening of applications to become a 2022-2023 Lazord Fellow. As a Lazord Fellow, you would be joining a multi-dimensional program that seeks to empower its fellows to develop a critical understanding of civic engagement, and to improve their leadership and technical skills for their future careers in all sectors.

The first Lazord Fellowship began in Egypt in 2010. It currently has chapters in Egypt, Jordan, and Tunisia, working with over 50 organizations. The fellowship is a yearlong regional program that includes a chance for the chapters and fellows in Egypt, Jordan, and Tunisia to meet all together twice a year (whether in person, or virtually).* After a competitive recruitment effort, fellows are selected in each of the 3 countries and placed for one year in a local organization. The fellowship offers training sessions, mentorship, and networking opportunities for fellows, guiding them through their year and helping them realize their full potential as responsible leaders.

  • be offered a minimum of 18 training sessions by influential civil society leaders and professional trainers on an array of topics pertaining to civil society, management, leadership, team building, management skills, and much more;
