Grant Type: General Support

Duration: January 1, 2019 - December 31, 2019

Organization Overview:

The American Muslim Civic Leadership Institute is a leadership development program committed to unlocking the talent of Muslim civic leaders and equipping them with practical tools around leadership, conflict resolution, storytelling and more.

Request Overview:

AMCLI marked its 10th year of programming in 2018, and plans to continue building on its success and expanding its leadership pipeline. AMCLI’s goal is to help Muslim leaders acquire the skills they need to be more effective activists and movement builders to create a vibrant and dynamic ecosystem of Muslim nonprofit leaders and public officeholders. To date, 221 individuals have participated in AMCLI: 108 took part in five cohorts of the National Fellowship, which was implemented between 2008-2013. Another 113 have participated in five cohorts of the Regional Fellowship, which included gatherings in the Midwest, West Coast (2), South and East Coast. The next phase of AMCLI will focus on expanding the leadership pipeline through more regional programs (in the pacific northwest, midwest and south) and strategically strengthening our alumni network through a cross-cohort program. As it continues to reach and support emerging American Muslim leaders through these programs, it is also focusing on infrastructure and capacity needs to fortify the work for years to come.
