This summer, the Pocket Project sponsored scholarships for the Trauma-Informed Leadership in Times of Crisis Summer Leadership Development Course for leaders in change movements, social enterprises, and NGOs, that is taking place from 20 June – end of September 2021 – more info here.

While the past months may be remembered as particularly traumatising for many of us, trauma is not new. As leaders, we are called to raise our awareness of the multifaceted nature of trauma and understand its impact on us, our teams, and our work in the world. Awareness is the first step in a cultural shift from trauma-inducing, to trauma-informed and, finally, to trauma-integrating organizations. The Pocket Project is offering this pioneering online course to develop this awareness.

The course was led by Thomas Hübl, and supported by Jens Riese, Robin Alfred and Karen Simms, all experienced organisational and leadership consultants, and by Kosha Joubert, CEO of the Pocket Project.

If you are from the Global South, from a non-majority background and/or from a crisis area, please read on to find out whether you might be eligible. And if you wish to sponsor such a scholarship, please click on the donate button for more information.

Scholarships will be allocated according to the following criteria:

  • Country of residence/origin:
    • We have followed UN categorisation to allocate countries to four groups. The higher the number of the group your country of origin/residence belongs to, the higher your chances of gaining a scholarship.
    • Group 1: Austria, Australia, Belgium, read more
    • Group 2: Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, read more
    • Group 3: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, read more
    • Group 4: Afghanistan, Algeria, Angola, read more
  • We will aim for gender balance
  • We will aim for diversity of ethnic background and cultural heritage: if you come from a non-majority background within your country of residence/origin, your chances increase.
  • We will aim for a certain level of previous experience with trauma integration work.
  • We will aim to allocate scholarships to those who fulfil a meaningful role and service within their community (online or offline, local or global).

Over the coming months and years, the Pocket Project will be working to make more opportunities available for access to capacity building around Collective Trauma Integration work.
