About (CSP) Program

The Community Solutions Program (CSP) is a 12-month professional development program for community leaders who are already working to better their neighbourhoods by tackling problems with democracy and human rights, the environment, peace and conflict resolution, and women and gender. The CSP consists of a six-month follow-up community project that fellows carry out in their own countries after completing a four-month practical U.S. practicum and receiving individualised leadership mentoring and training through a graduate-level leadership program. 

Community leaders will be chosen to take part in the following program:

- Fellowship lasting four months in the US: Community Solutions fellows are paired with host groups around the country where they conduct a four-month, practical professional practicum to develop their technical skills and experience.

- Community Leadership Institute: Community Solutions fellows take part in this graduate-level leadership program, which aims to improve their managerial and leadership abilities. The Institute offers networking opportunities, professional mentoring, online courses, and in-person training.

Community-based initiatives: Community Solutions fellows conceive and plan a community development effort or project to carry out after they return home while they are in the U.S. and with the assistance of their U.S. host organization. Following their departure from the United States, the fellows carry out a six-month follow-up project in their local communities.
