Youth Engagement

Saheli’s Youth Engagement Program (SYEP) is a space for South Asian youth to come together and engage with each other on issues that connect them. The SYEP includes the Youth Leadership Fellowship for high school students, and the Saheli University Ambassadorship and Internship programs for college students.

Become a Saheli Youth Fellow

The Saheli Youth Fellowship is an opportunity from July to August of 2023-2024 that provides
high school students with the chance to engage with issues pertaining to South Asian, Middle Eastern, and North
African (SAMENA) communities. Youth Fellows will get the chance to attend
workshops, engage in discussions on issues important to them, and develop a collaborative,
community-based art project for distribution.
