Active Participation

Under the program, European participants are exposed to diverse community organizing methods to engage citizens as active participants in solving problems in their own communities.


Participants gain hands-on experience at both public and civil society institutions in the U.S. and a deeper understanding of U.S. society, culture, and people.


Through 4-week internship placements at national, state and local organizations across the U.S., European fellows gain knowledge and experience as well as adaptable approaches that they can implement after their return.
