Advanced Advocacy Program

Empowering the Next Generation of Global Leaders

The New Voices Advanced Advocacy Program (AAP) represents an innovative extension of the New Voices Fellowship, strategically designed to reinvest in emerging leaders who have successfully completed the New Voices Fellowship training. The program is dedicated to cultivating the next generation of global health and development leaders, equipping them to tackle critical global challenges and drive transformative change. The fellowship not only aims to build on the successes of selected Senior Fellows, but by providing further support and resources, empower them to achieve specific advocacy goals

AAP Fellows will work with mentors to develop a strategic plan for advocacy efforts. This includes defining goals, target audiences, key messages, strategies for achieving advocacy objectives and allocating resources to support the implentation of the plan.

AAP Fellows will work with mentors to develop an evaluation plan based on their advocacy plan. This will outline methods and criteria for assessing impact and effectiveness of the Fellows’ Advocacy Plan. The plan will also inform for any required adjustments during implementation.

AAP Fellows are expected to attend at least one regional and global convening. This will provide fellows with an opportunity to facilitate connections and knowledge-sharing amongst key actors including funders within their sector.

Fellows will be provided with necessary tools and resources to effectively communicate their advocacy messages. This support will be tailored to the unique needs of the fellows.

The Aspen team is collaborating with Niyel and Burness to provide communications and advocacy support to Senior Fellows.
