The African Civic Engagement Academy (ACEA) is a free online training program and networking opportunity offered to selected mid-career NGO and public sector leaders across sub-Saharan Africa.
Selected participants will receive online instruction and participate in peer discussions organized into three short courses:
> Principles of Civic Engagement;
> Political Inclusion;
> Media Management.
Participants will also be exposed to leadership development and strategic planning concepts.
All participants will develop a peer-mentored Civic Engagement Action Plan, where they identify steps to bring a civic engagement project to life in their community or government unit.
Participants will receive a certificate from the University of Georgia, USA, upon completion.
Up to 60 participants will be selected to attend a post-program African Civic Engagement Summit to be held in 2022.
