The 2022 Accountability Incubator is looking for the very best ideas from young people for accountability, participation and open government. If you live in one of the following countries you are eligible for this round of the incubator: DRC, Kenya, Liberia, Mali, Mexico, Nepal, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, South Africa, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. South Africa’s Incubator for 2022 is focused on aspiring journalists and media practitioners.
The Accountability Incubator is Accountability Lab’s (www.accountabilitylab.org) flagship program for young change makers to build sustainable, effective tools for change. The Incubator provides a non-prescriptive, yet supportive environment for creative, enterprising individuals who bring innovative ideas to inspire accountability in their communities.
Selected “accountapreneurs” receive a year of hands-on, comprehensive support including: training and knowledge-building, mentoring, network building, and media outreach support. All delivered virtually with in-person “friendraisers”, events and networking where safe to do so, given the COVID-19 pandemic.
Women, people with disabilities and other minority groups are encouraged to apply in particular.
Applications should be submitted by 11:59PM EST on September 30th, 2021. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis so applicants are encouraged to apply early.
All applicants will be evaluated by the Incubator staff and our mentorship board based on the questions below and a subsequent interview for short-listed candidates. The submission of a 1-minute video is optional but advisable to strengthen your application.
Applicants applying to the program must be residents of the countries listed above.
