New Voices Fellowship

Catalyzing locally-rooted, globally networked leaders to become visible, effective advocates to champion more equitable development systems.

The New Voices Fellowship at the Aspen Institute uses communications, advocacy, and storytelling training to equip experts and advocates from countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America and the Caribbean with skills to change public opinion and shift public policy.

By providing Fellows the skills to communicate and amplify their messages, the program shifts power to those with proximity to the communities they serve. Fellows combine the support of trained advocacy mentors with their increased recognition to advocate for policy change at local, national and global levels.

Having been a part of other, highly prominent international fellowships, I am even more certain that NVF does not have a parallel in terms of efficacy in design of modules, authenticity of staff, quality of mentors and the global community it is creating.
