ASRI Future Leaders Fellowship Program 2017 – Johannesburg

Deadline: November 20, 2017

The ASRI Future Leaders program develops young people for the NGO and Government sectors, and therefore recruits individuals who are socially and politically active in their communities. The program seeks to recruit young people who aspire, in different spheres, to create change in South Africa. In developing these young people, they enhance their social and human capital in a way that not only accelerates their personal growth but which also translates into increased opportunities in the future.

Graduates of the 2017 ASRI Future Leaders Fellowship Program are anticipated to go on to become influential and prominent leaders in government and civil society, occupying a variety of positions in non-profit organisations; interest groups; policy institutes; media organisations; the public service and so forth. The program will accept 30 individuals for 2017.
