Pacific Resiliency Fellows (PRF) is an international fellowship program that brings together
promising future leaders who work on conservation or sustainability initiatives
throughout the Pacific region. The goal of the program is to support the
development of resilient communities by mentoring early to mid-career
professionals to become strong leaders and empowered social entrepreneurs. The
PRF Program will also give a voice to smaller communities and grow the capacity
of the next generation of leaders to positively impact Island Earth.
PRF is best suited for emerging leaders who are in the early to
middle stages of their careers, and have shown exceptional aptitude, character,
leadership, and sense of stewardship for the earth and their communities.
In year one we will connect fellows from across the Pacific, including
American Samoa, Guam, Hawaiʻi, Northern Mariana Islands, Palau, and Rapa Nui.
Throughout the program, fellows will progress
through a diverse curriculum and engage with one another through web
conferences, calls and blogs as they work in their respective communities. All PRFs will be provided with:
training and development
- Action plan
development and implementation
communication design and practice
- In-person training
