Community Solutions Fellows

WISE is proud to be a host site for the IREX Community Solutions Program.

The IREX Community Solutions Program (CSP) is a professional leadership development program for the best and brightest community leaders worldwide. Community Solutions Fellows complete a four-month fellowship with a US nonprofit organization or local government agency. Fellows return home to apply their new skills through a community action project.

CSP is sponsored by the US Department of State with funding provided by the US government and supported in its implementation by IREX. Learn more and become a host site for CSP.
