Description: 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 three to six months, but no longer than one year per cohort. The project will bring three to four small cohorts of civil-society leaders and/or young professionals to a third country 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.
