The Community Engagement Exchange (CEE) Program seeks experienced civil society leaders to join the CEE Participant Selection Committee.
Reading Committee Members (Readers) will read and score applications for the 2022-2023 cohort of CEE Fellows from February 11 – March 4, 2022. Readers will read and rank 30-40 applications and provide feedback from the global civil society community, including U.S. community developers, thematic experts, individuals with experience hosting international exchange participants, American and international civil society leaders, and alumni of U.S. Government (USG) programs working in the civil society sector.
The CEE Program is a year-long program designed to enable civil society leaders, ages 21-28, to harness the power of networks, relationships, and information for the public good, specifically on issues related to civic dialogue and peacebuilding, open and participatory government, women and gender, resilience and sustainable development, and youth engagement.
CEE’s selection process consists of two phases: the reading phase and the interview phase.
- The reading phase will take place from February 11 – March 4, 2022. Members of the Selection Committee (Readers) will be responsible for reviewing and scoring 30-40 written CEE applications
- The interview phase will take place from March 21 – April 8, 2022. Members of the Interview Committee will be responsible for reviewing and scoring approximately 20 pre-recorded interviews (limited availability; available to only members who serve as Readers)
Expectations of Readers
Readers will be responsible for evaluating program applicants based on set guidelines and a scoring rubric provided by the CEE team. Readers will each read approximately 30-40 applications and may receive a $100 honorarium* for their service (employees and contractors are not eligible to receive an honorarium).
Readers may be invited to serve on an Interview Committee (limited availability; additional honorarium and timeline will be provided to selected Interview Committee Members).
*The CEE Program is only able to send honorarium payments to an individual U.S. based bank account. Third-party authorization forms may be requested for international readers who identify a third party with an individual U.S. based bank account. CEE will not be able to support in identifying a third party to receive payment and international wire transfers are not available. Individuals are eligible to serve on the Selection Committee on a voluntary basis.
