The Al Sharq International Fellowship is a year-long leadership capacity-building program that brings together a network of 50 passionate and high-potential youth from around the world to become effective change agents committed to informed action.

The program aims to bring forth the next generation of globally oriented and locally committed ethical leaders, who possess the universal values of pluralism, inclusiveness and justice, by equipping them with the necessary skills to lead the wave of change at this time of transition and uncertainties.

Why Joining this Program?

From a global climate emergency to vast economic and social inequalities, our world is facing major uncertainties and challenges. But to build a better future for all, the world needs a new generation of young leaders who are creative problem-solvers as well as firm believers in the universal values of respect, justice and equality. The program designed to offer its fellows an ideal opportunity to become the effective agents of transformative change that the world – and their communities – desperately need.


  • Learning and Growth: Every fellow will receive a structured, holistic learning experience – combining online and offline content and activities – which will develop their skills and competencies to bring about positive impact.
  • Capacity Building: The program brings together a global cohort of like-minded fellows to an international retreat where the focus will be on leadership, capacity-building and systematic problem-solving.
  • A Global Network: Collaboration is at the heart of the program's vision. That is why a central feature of the program is to connect all fellows with notable regional and global mentors, experts, young leaders and activists.
