In a world that sees more and more division in communities and nations it is more important than ever to make sure that those of us who want to create a more just, kind and sustainable world get the professional skills to do this with the biggest impact possible.
Getting out of our comfort zones, learning from changemakers from all over the world and from the global South are all key learning elements we believe necessary for us to be able to create common ground, transcend boundaries and act with a global mindset, vision, courage and empathy.
We invite you to come and join us. Become an Amani Social Innovation Management Fellow.
Join a class of changemakers with diverse backgrounds – both professionally as well as geographically, in age and in experience, united by one common goal: to combine their passion for change with kick-ass professional skills and the inner capacities to make change happen from the inside out.
Connect passion with purpose and build a career of impact. We need people like you to tackle the world’s toughest challenges!
This program is about learning by doing, training with master practitioners, unlocking your potential, and preparing to build the career YOU truly want. You will choose whether you want to do the 4-month immersion phase of the program in Brazil or Kenya. This program has been featured in several news outlets – from Stanford Social Innovation Review, to Forbes and Fast Company.
Join a diverse and global community of 40 like-minded individuals from around the world, with roughly 20 in Nairobi and Sao Paulo each and alumni all over the globe. They are committed – like you – to creating a career of positive impact.
You will build cutting-edge 21st century skills with the help of global C-level practitioners who are masters in the fields of Leadership, Communication, Entrepreneurship & Management, and Creativity & Problem-Solving. You will get a hands-on experience of making change in an organization you care about or work on your own venture.
You will also think deeply about your own goals and motivations, and begin to align who you are with what you want to do in the next phase of your career.
