Deadline: 29 April, 2022

The Global Citizen, in partnership with Beyonce’s BeyGOOD, has opened fresh applications for the Global Citizen Fellowship Programme in Africa.

The programme is designed to unearth the remarkable potential of young people in South Africa, Nigeria, and Kenya through a paid, year-long fellowship aligned with one of Global Citizen’s four pillars of activity: creative, policy and campaigns, rewards, and marketing.

The programme’s curriculum is designed to equip fellows with the skills and tools they need to thrive, not only during their time with Global Citizen, but also in any future endeavours.


  • Each fellow will receive a work placement within the Global Citizen Africa team – which is based in South Africa and in Nigeria – where they will have hands-on training through real experience
  • Fellows will be provided with the skills and resources to help them secure work beyond their time with Global Citizen, giving them the best possible chance of achieving their dreams


  • Open to young South Africans, Nigerians, and Kenyans between the ages of 21 and 25 who have a secondary school certificate, and are available from 19 July, 2022, until 30 June, 2023, to join the programme
  • Applicants must also be able to house themselves in Johannesburg or Lagos for the duration of the programme
  • Kenyan applicants can be based anywhere in the country, and will participate virtually
  • Applicants should be able to prove that they are active Global Citizens, either through the work they do in their communities or through Global Citizen’s website or app
