Building Leaders in Cuban Civil Society Program: The Building Leaders in Cuban Civil Society project will support the participation of cohorts of young emerging leaders from Cuban civil society in a professional development project, ideally for four to six months with an alumni follow-on component. The project will include bringing two to three small cohorts of civil-society leaders and/or young professionals to a third country, for no longer than three weeks per cohort, for in-depth training in required skillsets for fostering grassroots civil society in Cuba as a means of developing the skills needed to build up Cuban democracy. Such skills may include, but are not limited to, communications for spreading democratic ideals, presenting democracy-building and human rights ideas to audiences, and starting or growing community-level organizations related to democracy-building. Targeted skills to develop could include reaching remote areas to spread ideas related to democracy or democratic principles, presenting a program or project idea to potential NGO partners related to democracy-building, learning international communication tools and operating in the international organization community, and/or assessing unmet community needs, leadership and team building, strategic communications, office skills, organizational effectiveness, practical application of skills, or other topics consistent with the LIBERTAD Act.
