Engineers Without Borders Junior Fellowship Program

The Junior Fellowship is a key step in the leadership pipeline of EWB’s change system. The program is not just a 4-month overseas volunteer placement. It is 12 months of leadership through experience in which Fellows will be challenged to address the root causes of poverty. From the day they’re hired, they become part of a network of young Canadians who dream big, work hard and who believe that social change in Africa is possible. We invest in Fellows through coaching, guided learning activities, and continuous mentoring.

The goals of the program are threefold:
1. To create change in Canada by providing returned Fellows who are able to educate and inspire Canadians to change the way they think, feel and act towards Africa.
2. To create change in Africa by working directly with EWB’s Ventures and their partners to have real and direct impact with communities.
3. To create change and learning for the Junior Fellow, allowing them to grow as much as possible. Fellows will emerge from their experiences better equipped to act as leaders for change in Canada and in Africa over the long term.
