NNAAC Transformative Leaders Fellowship Program
About the NNAAC Transformative Leaders Fellowship Program
The NNAAC Fellowship program is a leadership development training program that has been developed through the National Network for Arab American Communities. The program is designed for Arab American undergraduate juniors or seniors or graduate level college students, or recent graduates.  Fellows will be expected to work 16 hours per week in an Arab American human services/arts & culture organization, and will be given opportunities to learn about all aspects of a non-profit organization, including administration, grant writing, fundraising, communications, community engagement, and service delivery, among other things.  The Fellowship program will run from September, 2022 – June, 2023, and each fellow will receive a $3,500 stipend throughout their service in three installments.  

Fellows will be required to attend a virtual orientation during September/October 2022, date TBD, as well as Arab American Leadership Days in D.C. in April/May 2023 (this event is TBD due to COVID-19). In addition, Fellows will be required to participate in regular monthly trainings offered electronically by NNAAC.  Fellows will also be required to work with their host organization on developing a professional development plan during their fellowship, obtaining additional training opportunities, and receiving important professional support for them to achieve their goals.

Primary Outcomes:
1. To develop an interest in, knowledge of and commitment to working in the non-profit sector while gaining access to the tools and skills pertinent in becoming successful leaders

2. To develop competencies surrounding the social and cultural issues facing Arab American communities

3. To provide service and administrative support to the host organization
