Humanity in Action’s Mission and Network

Humanity in Action Fellowship programs seek to educate, connect and inspire future leaders to be responsible citizens in the broadest range of fields– government and diplomacy, journalism, entrepreneurship and business, grassroots activism, science, academia and culture and the arts.

Upon successful completion of these programs, Fellows will join the global network of over 1,700 Humanity in Action Senior Fellows. As Senior Fellows, they are eligible for advanced professional and educational opportunities, including fellowships in the U.S. Congress, the European Parliament and organizations like the ACLU and the NAACP.

The Humanity in Action Fellowship programs provide opportunities for collaborative learning and problem solving. These programs are designed for those who seek to enrich and broaden their knowledge and skills with various and often conflicting perspectives. As such, the programs are testing grounds for thinking anew with others about complex issues of diversity and democracy in historical and contemporary terms. The programs focus, through educational seminars and site visits, on vulnerable populations and the unfulfilled goals of just democratic societies. The programs do not engage in on-the-ground training for political activism, although some programs emphasize campaigns to fight prejudice through social media and other means.
