Those are just a few of the ways Faiths Act Fellows have described their year in the program. If you are motivated by your faith to make a difference in the world, consider applying for next year’s Faiths Act Fellowship.
The Faiths Act Fellowship is a year-long, paid opportunity for young leaders to work toward the UN’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to end the scandal of extreme poverty. The Fellowship is a program of the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, in collaboration with Interfaith Youth Core.
After one month of training in London, Faiths Act Fellows are placed into pairs and matched with leading NGOs in their home countries. There, they work for the rest of their Fellowship year to build partnerships across faiths and mobilize communities in support of the MDGs while developing their own interfaith leadership skills. Faiths Act Fellowship 2011-12 begins in July 2011 and ends in June 2012.
