South Africa: Fellowship of Accountability Lab Nonprofit Management

What you need to know:

A generation of responsible and active leaders and citizens is now being developed by Accountability Lab, a global trans-slical network dedicated to making governance work for people by doing their best to promote engaged citizens, responsible leaders, and accountable institutions. One of our objectives is to assist changemakers in creating and implementing constructive ideas within their communities, fostering integrity, and acting as pillars of socioeconomic change.

Accountability Labs is generously financing a one-year fellowship in nonprofit management with an emphasis on accountability as part of its efforts to fulfill its mandate of fostering the next generation of nonprofit leaders in Africa (South Africa). Under the supervision of a senior staff member, fellows will have the chance to participate in every element of running a nonprofit. Partnership development, stakeholder relations, and project management, as well as MEL, communication, and research, are all part of the program.

One Nonprofit Management Fellow is desired by Accountability Lab South Africa (AL SA) to reside in Johannesburg, South Africa. The primary goal of the current Fellowship (2021) is to support the realization of our flagship Integrity Icon Campaign as well as other to-be-assigned projects.
