Today, Facebook is inviting community leaders from Nigeria, South Africa and Kenya to apply for the 2021 Facebook Community Accelerator Program—a program that offers participants training, mentorship and up to $50,000 USD in funds to invest in an initiative that extends their community’s positive impact.

The aim of the Community Accelerator is to help leaders of Facebook communities to harness the power of their community to turn ideas into action. The selected leaders will spend five months learning from experts, coaches and a customised curriculum so they can strengthen their community.

Lessons include community identity foundations, leading action-oriented programmes and sustainability. Participants will also receive early access to new Facebook products aimed at helping communities better manage and activate their members.

Plan an initiative

Participants will identify an important initiative that will create a positive impact on the broader world and develop a plan to mobilise their community around their goal. Initiatives will be shared with potential partners, mentors and a panel of judges for the chance to be awarded funding and receive public recognition.

Participants will then spend three months executing their initiatives. They will collaborate with advocates and leaders in the community space and work with the Facebook team to bring their ideas to life.

Says Kiran Yoliswa, Partner Management Lead, Middle East and Africa Community Partnerships at Facebook: “Facebook communities and their leaders are helping to resolve social challenges, sharing knowledge and information, while connecting with others that share their interests or passion for a cause. We’ve seen so many incredible communities from across South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria using our platform to drive change and provide support and encouragement for thousands of people, we’re excited to offer their Facebook Community leaders this program to help amplify their impact even more.”

How to apply

This program is open to communities that have a presence in Facebook Groups with leaders who are 18 years or older. Communities must have existed for over one year and must have a minimum size of 1,000 members.  Applications open today, May 4 – 31, 2021.

  28. Hi, I do believe this is a great website I understand this is off subject but I just had to ask. Appreciate it! “성인망가” Freedom is the greatest way to change, may you be rich and continue to guide other people.I stumbledupon it 😉 I may revisit once again since I bookmarked it.

  29. Wow, superb weblog structure! How long have you been running a blog for? you made blogging look easy. The whole glance of your website is great, let alone the content material!

  30. I as well as my guys came studying the great helpful tips on your web site and so before long I had a horrible suspicion I had not thanked the web site owner for those strategies. My young men became totally very interested to see them and already have in reality been making the most of them. Thank you for indeed being considerably helpful and for pick out certain impressive useful guides millions of individuals are really eager to be aware of. My personal sincere apologies for not expressing appreciation to sooner.

  31. There are some interesting points in time in this article but I don’t know if I see all of them middle to heart. There may be some validity but I will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we wish more! Added to FeedBurner as nicely

  32. This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
