Professional Fellows Program (PFP)
The Professional Fellows Program (PFP) for Economic Empowerment in the Middle East and North Africa is a two-way exchange program sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and designed to promote mutual understanding, enhance leadership and professional skills, and build lasting, sustainable partnerships between mid-level emerging leaders committed to strengthening their communities through social entrepreneurship and workforce development. PFP Fellows are placed in intensive U.S.-based fellowships in non-profit organizations, private sector businesses, and government offices for individually tailored professional development experiences. They build broad networks with American and other participant colleagues as they develop a deeper understanding of U.S. society and enhance their professional skills. American participants who have hosted international fellows travel overseas for participant-driven reciprocal programs. Legacy International’s partners in Austin, Texas and Detroit, Michigan create meaningful and successful fellowship and exchange experiences. Legacy International also partners with organizations in Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, and Tunisia to select and support international fellows.
The Program Manager works as part of a team to plan, coordinate and implement PFP, playing a central role in the selection process of exchange participants, fellowship outreach and placement with U.S. hosts, as well as group management and support, delivering segments of training and managing social media for this project. (Other Legacy exchange programs may also be supported and contributed to at various times.)
