Alliance Advocates are selected through a rigorous training program designed to find those applicants who will benefit most from the training. In 2018, Alliance Advocate training is shifting from a single global training course to several regional courses. The training will take place in collaboration with FedEx and delivered by YOURS.
We invite members of the Global Alliance who are eligible for the training in the region to apply! The African Alliance Advocate training, which will be held in Nairobi, Kenya, in March 2018 is now open for applications.
The Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety (also known as 'The Alliance') received a generous grant from FedEx to help further develop the capacity of the 200+ Alliance members (reached in 2017) in 90 countries.
The Alliance created the 'Alliance Empowerment Program', an overarching program that has the aim to work with NGO leaders to improve their effectiveness and impact. Members of the Alliance identified several key areas for development that would help them in their road safety missions on the ground.
In response to a clear capacity development need, the Alliance developed supportive programs under the banner of the Empowerment Program. These include: The Alliance Academy: which offers trainings such as online webinars and in-person training workshops.
The Alliance Advocates training have been delievered twice from a global perspective in Memphis, Tenessee at the FedEx Global Headquarters in 2016 and in 2017.
The African Alliance Advocate training is open to Alliance members from the African region. Non-members and members of the Alliance from other regions cannot be considered.
Members will need to confirm the visa requirements to travel to Kenya.
We can only consider applicants who are decision-makers within their organization.
Travel, accommodation, and food subsidies will be available but successful participants should expect to cover some costs themselves.
