The program seeks to empower 15 young Romanian students aged 18-27 to better help their communities, increase their English language ability, learn more about U.S. democratic values, and gain the necessary life-long tools to engage in civic activism and social responsibility.
Despite the spectacular ascent of the Romanian civil society sector after the collapse of Communism and the victory of students’ rights, the environment in which NGOs exist in Romania is still divided and institutionally weak, with many of the NGOs leaders lacking concrete leadership skills.
The Kennedy Academy is designed to increase the leadership skills of students and to cultivate additional skills, such as critical thinking, public speaking, team building, community building and goal setting. Due to active learning, participants will experience everything directly: they will take part in interactive workshops and simulations in English, they will speak with experts, they will visit key-institutions in Romania, and they will interact with change-makers.
