The Goodwill Fellowship Program 2022

About The Fellowship

The Goodwill Fellowship Program is an intervention program launched by Youths Inspiration in 2021 after identifying a soaring number of young people in Cameroon who have amazing social impact ideas but with inadequate knowledge, skills, and resources to implement them.

The aim of the fellowship is to empower young people between 18 – 28 years old in Cameroon with the knowledge, skills, and resources needed to transform their social impact ideas into valuable, feasible, and sustainable projects that will bring about positive change within communities.

The fellowship will focus on two core areas namely: Ethical Leadership and Social Entrepreneurship. To further guide the fellows and follow up with their work, the intensive in-person training will be followed by a post mentorship program with well-experienced mentors from across Cameroon.

Over the course of the program, the Fellows continue with implementing their initiatives while participating in immersive workshops, training, and mentorship. The fellowship equips changemakers with an opportunity to get access to global knowledge, community, training, and tools to become more effective collaborators of change and grow their initiatives.
