Treasure Valley - Seeking Fellowship Coordinators
A program of the U.S. Department of State’s Educational and Cultural Affairs Bureau (ECA), the YSEALI Professional Fellows Program is seeking fellowship coordinators in the Treasure Valley Area. This is a professional development exchange program for the best and brightest community leaders from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), working in the field of civic engagement. The Professional Fellows Program provides participants with a month-long fellowship at a U.S. based nonprofit or other organizations, government offices, or businesses. They work with community leaders to enhance their practical expertise, leadership skills and professional contacts to address issues in their home communities.
In return to working with Southeast Asian colleagues on issues of critical importance, U.S. fellowship hosts will then have an opportunity to apply to travel to their fellows’ countries all-expense-paid, to continue to collaborate and provide expertise to other leaders and organizations.
The Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) was launched in 2013 to strengthen leadership development and networking in ASEAN, deepen engagement with young leaders on key regional and global challenges, and strengthen people-to-people ties between the United States and young Southeast Asian leaders. The YSEALI Professional Fellows Program is part of the broader Professional Fellows exchange program.
If you are interested in learning more about this program please reach out to LeAnn Naillon at Telos Coaching & Consulting.
Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts a headcount of every person residing in the nation. The next census occurs in 2020 and will determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives and how $675 billion dollars are distributed to local communities. A successful census depends on strong community engagement and participation. Part of that effort are Complete Count Committees.
Complete Count Committees (CCC) are made up of a broad spectrum of leaders that are trusted voices within their communities. They organize, plan, and implement a localized campaign to promote participation in the 2020 Census. Some counties and cities have already started their initial planning, working collaboratively with the Community Planning Association of Southwestern Idaho (COMPASS).
Currently, Partnerships Specialists have been active throughout our region meeting with local governments, elected officials, and community-based organizations. They are available to provide information about the 2020 Census and training on how to form a complete count committee, providing technical guidance on upcoming census operational activities.
