With support from the Hurford Foundation, the World Youth Movement for Democracy, working with the International Forum for Democratic Studies at NED, will host youth fellows 18-30 years of age in its Washington, D.C., office. For a period of three months, each fellow will have the opportunity to build his or her leadership and organizational skills while contributing to the development of the World Youth Movement.
Hurford Youth Fellows facilitate discussion events; conduct research on youth-related topics such as, for example, civic education, the role of youth in policy development, and youth activities against corruption; develop online resources, take part in planning and implementing other activities of the World Youth Movement; and various other undertakings. Each fellow also makes at least one formal presentation of their work during their stay.
Upon the successful completion of each fellowship at NED, each fellow serves as a regional/country focal point, working with the Youth Democracy Ambassadors to remain involved and take the lead in World Youth Movement activities.
