Fellowship

What is the One Future Fellowship?

The One Future Fellowship is a hybrid part time program: it incorporates a mix of classroom style learning, workshops, immersive experiences, actionable projects, mentoring and peer support; towards building curated personal leadership experiences for young people, for larger scale societal transformation and impact.

Why the One Future Fellowship?

Young people in India are not equipped with the tools and networks to build effective and innovative solutions to social challenges. We aim to build a new generation of young social leaders in India that have the capacity to create and implement transformative solutions through a holistic mix of learning, actionable impact, mentoring and peer to peer collaborations. It is youth social leadership by and for young people. Our key objectives are:

  1. Build a community of young changemakers;
  2. Ensure young people have the skills to demand decision making powers;
  3. Bring about personal leadership transformation;
  4. Ensure active learning through implementation of a social impact project;
  5. Rather than supporting an individual idea or project – supporting young individuals so that they can create multiple interventions;
  6. Support you in your personal and leadership journeys.

Who are our partners?

We’re very fortunate to have the Canadian Consulate in Mumbai, United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network, CIVICUS and 91springboard as our institutional partners.

Who can apply?

  • Any young person who wants to create change and social impact is welcome to apply, no prior experience is necessary.
  • Between 16 to 30 years of age.

What does the One Future Fellowship look like?

1. Learning Track

The fellowship has a strong focus on ensuring the fellows have a fulfilling learning experience. For three months the fellows will undergo rigorous learning experiences through a mix of classroom based sessions and workshops  during the course of this program. The learning will be focused on social leadership, building projects, organisations and teams, social-emotional learning, management practices, advocacy and education, design thinking for change, legal-policy aspects, alongwith project specific learnings for each fellow. Facilitation of the learning component will be by field experts.

2. Personalised Coaching 

Each fellow will be paired with a coach, who has expertise in a common area of work and is considered an industry leader, for the course of their fellowship journey. 

3. Social Impact Project

To ensure learning has happened, it is imperative to see it in action. Each fellow will be asked to submit a project idea at the time of applying for the fellowship, this idea can evolve in the course of the fellowship. After the first month of the fellowship, that will focus solely on learning, the fellows will have to simultaneously work on executing a micro project in their chosen area of social justice. The project or atleast the first phase of the project has to be completed before the end of the fellowship.

4. Networking and learning opportunities

We will actively provide fellows with opportunities to network and learn outside of OFC as well. Fellows will also be given free access to other learning opportunities at OFC.
