New fellowship programme launched for young Global Citizens in South Africa

The Global Citizen Fellowship Program powered by BeyGOOD will offer 10-15 paid, year-long fellowship aligned to one of Global Citizen’s four pillars of activity: creative, campaigns, rewards and marketing.

Global Citizen, an international movement of engaged young people who are harnessing their collective voice to end extreme poverty by 2030, has established a new programme designed to discover, support and empower young Global Citizens of exceptional drive, talent and ability throughout South Africa.  

The fellowship program, which was launched on 5 March, is an initiative of the recently formed regional branch of the movement, Global Citizen Africa, which is based in Johannesburg. This was set up at the beginning of the year following the overwhelming success of Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 in December last year, the first Global Citizen event on African soil. 

The program hopes to alleviate the high unemployment rate among young people in South Africa Fellows will be immersed in the use of digital technology for social change, storytelling tactics that shift attitudes, and the process of building lasting professional relationships. The program will also help to create an in-depth understanding of the role that innovation has to play in a constantly changing world.

The five phase curriculum will see each Fellow allocated a supervisor from the Global Citizen Africa team, who will manage and support him or her during day-to-day activities. The organisation will also bring together leaders from entertainment, business, government and civil society to provide personalised mentorship and to help the Fellows realise their inherent ability to become global agents of change.

The first four phases of the program will cover leadership, advocacy, international development, and global citizenship. Participants will take part in a series of masterclasses and educational field trips designed to help them develop into value-based, community-driven leaders.

The final phase of the programme will provide Fellows with the skills and resources needed to help them secure work after completing the fellowship program,  and give them the best possible chance of achieving both their personal and broader social goals.

To top it all off, Fellows who have demonstrated exceptional potential will be given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel to New York City in September 2019. There they will experience the iconic Global Citizen Festival, which takes place in Central Park every year, and work  with the international Global Citizen team.

The Global Citizen Fellowship Program powered by BeyGOOD will give talented young people in South Africa the opportunity to experience and learn from this unique movement.

Published

Nozipho Mashana, Empress South Africa contestant. A believer of working hard and using her craft to instil positive attitudes and carrying that through ones being.

Who is Nozipho Mashaba?

Nozipho Mashaba (25) from the rich grounds of Venda to the city of Gold describes herself as a humble and caring soul. A woman with determination to be successful and a hard worker.


How do you use your craft as a tool to spread positivity?

If they say it’s impossible, it’s impossible for them not for you. No matter where you come from or  what you have been through the future is yours too. Our dreams are valid and we all have the power to make  them come true.

What does it mean for you to be part of Empress South Africa?

Empress South Africa is a wonderful women empowerment platform, that doesn’t discriminate your size, race, background (whether you rich or poor), you height your weight and your looks.
This is something that I’ve dreamt about doing for the longest time and day by day, moment by moment I’m getting closer to realising my dream. I am overwhelmed with gratitude to have made it this far and being able to make my hometown proud.


What is that one thing you would like the world to know about you?


I love people and changing lives so much. Every time l meet someone l make an impact in their lives. I’m one person who is not scared of losing because that way l get to learn how l can make myself better. I take risks and l challenge myself to new things.


What made you choose modelling?

I love the thrill and influence that comes with it, having to touch more lives either than those close to me through modelling is a fulfilling feeling.

Since it’s women’s month what message do have for women  out there and those looking to follow in your footsteps ?

Always know that you are beautiful, important, unique,  wonderful and talented. Your dreams are valid. Speak up and trust me someone will hear you. Believe in yourself, do what you want, take chances, get the right information and you can do more than you think. Dare to be ambitious and don’t let others define you cause you are enough. Lastly never settle.

This women’s month we celebrate Nozipho’s determination in using her craft to encourage young people to move beyond their limits.
