Youth unity programme
THE Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS) invites youths and young professionals aged 20 to 30 years old to apply for a special National Unity Youth Fellowship Programme.
The programme is run by IDEAS with the National Unity and National Integration Department at the Prime Minister’s Department.
The Youth Fellowship Programme aims to develop and support a group of 20 young leaders by providing them with the skills and knowledge to champion the moderation and national unity as envisioned in the Rukun Negara.
The Youth Fellows will participate in three training workshops and taught strategic planning, organising, messaging and advocacy.
They will also be given basic exposure to topics like integrity, ethnic and religious relations, nation building, economics, globalisation, radicalism and other relevant issues.
There will also be 11 engagement roundtables in which the Youth Fellows will meet directly with community and religious leaders in different parts of Malaysia to get first hand exposure of the real issues on the ground.
Candidates must be Malaysian citizens between 20 and 30 years old; be able to attend and participate actively in all activities; travel to different parts of the country; have a proven youth leadership record; and be committed to the values advocated by the Rukun Negara.
