PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Public Affairs Section of the Embassy of the United States of America to the Republic of Rwanda (PAS Kigali) announces an open competition for Rwandan organizations to submit proposals for a year-long mentorship program to promote youth participation in community service, volunteerism, good governance, and citizen-centered governance initiatives. Under this project, a grantee will collaborate with PAS Kigali to build upon the citizenship participation skills of a cohort of Rwandan youth leaders so they may follow their dreams to constructively engage in policy processes at the community level or other levels. The target audience is Rwandan youth active in leadership activities at any level, be it in school, church, neighborhoods and communities, local organizations, or other fora.  Training and mentorship topics will be: active citizenship, civic engagement, and civic responsibilities; volunteerism and community service; constructive engagement in good governance initiatives; participation in citizen-centered governance; accountability in governance; building critical thinking skills; and other topics to further inspire young Rwandan leaders.  After initial training, the cohort will be divided into groups and provided mentors to implement a hands-on project.  After project implementation the entire cohort will gather for presentations and feedback from mentors and trainers.
