UNICEF USA launched the Global Citizenship Fellowship in January 2012, uniting and empowering American youth and volunteers in service on behalf of children around the world. The fellowship is a highly-competitive, full-time, two year program that prepares diverse, committed, and globally minded individuals for effective leadership in public service.

What do Global Citizenship Fellows do?


Global Citizenship Fellows serve as grassroots and national spokespersons for children and bring together networks of faith-based communities, schools, universities, volunteers, advocates, elected leaders, and others to unite on behalf of children.

Leveraging UNICEF USA’s existing educational offerings and engagement programs, like UNICEF Kid PowerTrick-or-Treat for UNICEFEnd Trafficking, Youth Engagement (including High School and Campus Initiative Clubs), Advocacy, and Local Activations, the Global Citizenship Fellows are affecting transformational change in the lives of children around the world, and empowering people to act locally.
