SEEP believes that we must tap into the shared expertise and experience of emerging leaders, changemakers, and disruptors for a collaborative ecosystem to work effectively and to empower newcomers in the field. 

GenerationNOW is a peer support cohort for and by practitioners who are starting out in international development and are eager to change the landscape of the field. The cohort builds on the meaningful relationships of peers whereby power is shared, resources are exchanged, and existing ideas, skills, and strengths are leveraged.

The Cohort...


Creates Connections
The GenerationNOW cohort co-creates spaces to gather, connect, share experiences, and forge supportive relationships. Cohort gatherings may include monthly meetups, office hours, drop-in chats, and shared learning experiences from "speed dating" to master-classes. 


Builds a Reservoir of Expertise   
The GenerationNOW cohort is a resource unto itself.  Each member of the cohort is an expert about something -- from gender-sensitive programming to facilitation, metrics to blockchain and graphic design to crafting the perfect tweet. The cohort supports each other to share their knowledge, exchange resources, and grow together.
