Free, Dynamic, Unique, and Inspired
The Ideal Global Civ Fellows are free, dynamic, and unique individuals from age 14-19. They are inspired by living in the twenty-first century and seek relevant learning experiences as they shape a new global society, economy and environment. They are activists, young intellectuals, and learners who strive for learning in a new and challenging and non-traditional environment. We believe that these individuals will be are the core of any new learning ecology.
A Fellow must approach learning as a culture in our endeavor. As stated in the mission of Global Civ “learners are responsible for their learning and accountable for the outcomes that will define their understanding of a broad range of knowledge domains, their local communities and the world.” To be successful with a learning ecology, a Fellow will need to be self- directed, assertive, and resourceful. All stakeholders will cultivate these characteristics in students who demonstrate a desire to achieve them.
Starting with one North American fellow for our initial Pilot Project in 2010-2011 we will evaluate our needs for growth and announce our plans for growth in 2011. Depending on curricular development and partnership development we would hope to offer a minimum of 40 full fellowships to young people from North America and around the world by 2013. More will be released on the core development of frameworks, recruiting dates, and potential programs for 2011-2012 in 2011.
