The Africa Centre for Energy Policy (ACEP) calls for applications for the 6th cohort of its Next Generation Resource Governance Leaders Program.
The Next Generation Resource Governance Leaders Program is an internship that intends to balance a dose of theory with real-world application and equip participants with the requisite multi-disciplinary intellectual development, practical skills, and research abilities to think more innovatively to solve complex governance challenges. The Program is also a strategy to build a pipeline of young pan-African leaders to provide a sustainable path for good governance.
We aim to train and nurture young people in an enabling working environment through a structured capacity development process. These will include training on transformational leadership development, professional and career development, and digital communication and technology skills. Beyond the technical training in resource governance, interns will be exposed to the tools and guidance needed to set and achieve realistic personal and professional goals, coupled with well-rounded and ethical leadership training.
Applicant must be a young African who demonstrates a passion for ensuring the vast extractive resources in Africa translate to sustainable and inclusive development.
