Deadline: 31 October | The International Research and Exchanges Board (IREX) is now accepting applications for their 2018-2019 Community Solutions Program.  The program focuses on giving individuals the skills needed to improve their communities, addressing issues related to: the environment, tolerance, conflict resolution, transparency and accountability, and women and gender.

Types of Programs:

A Four-month Fellowship in the United States: Community Solutions fellows are matched to host organizations throughout the U.S. where they complete a four-month, hands-on professional experience.
Community Leadership Institute: Community Solutions fellows participate in the Community Leadership Institute, a leadership training program designed to strengthen their leadership and management skills. The Institute includes face-to-face trainings, online courses, professional coaching, and networking.
Community-based initiatives: While in the U.S. and with the help of their U.S. host organization, Community Solutions fellows design and plan a community development initiative or project to carry out after they return home. Once the fellows depart the U.S., they put these projects into action in their home communities.

Applicants must be between the ages of 25 and 38 as of January 1, 2019.
