Tell Me About Public Service Emerging Leaders Fellowship:

We are Excited to Announce the launch of the Public Service Emerging Leaders Fellowship program of Kenya, marking Emerging Public Leaders‘ entry into East Africa.

Join us Live on November 23rd as Emerging Public Leaders gathers with the Public Service Commission and Emerging Leaders Foundation Africa to celebrate the official signing and incorporation of the Public Service Emerging Leaders Fellowship.

As Kenya’s government continues to build an effective civil service corps, the Public Service Commission (PSC) launched the Public Service Emerging Leaders Fellowship of Kenya as an intergenerational effort to re-engage Kenya’s youth in public service and administration.

With an initial cohort of 50 future government leaders, the Public Service Emerging Leaders Fellowship program will focus on public-sector specific leadership development, ethics cultivation and citizen-centered government delivery.

In the course of a year, the fellowship trains and develops Kenya’s most promising young civil servants for future leadership, providing them with responsive training, supporting them with mentors, and connecting them with a pan-African peer network for support throughout their public service careers.

The Public Service Fellows will experience a specially designed curriculum, which incorporates ethical leadership, responsive training, and inclusive policy development and leadership modules from Kenya and around the world. Designed in collaboration with the Chandler Institute of Governance, an international non-profit organization based in Singapore, the curriculum is defined by its strong practitioner orientation.

A Path Forward

Over time and with help from our many partners, we hope to contribute to a strengthened public service at the national and sub-national level by recruiting young, exceptional talent into civil service to improve public service delivery, manage government resources ethically and transparently, and build a cadre of professionals.

We envision the Kenya program serving as a regional model for similar partnerships with the governments in Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ethiopia, and regional intergovernmental organizations like the East African Community (EAC), Common Market for Eastern, and Southern Africa (COMESA).
