Our Mission
CECEM have chosen the mission of inspiring individuals, organizations to discover their potentials and be proactive in empowering themselves for better life.

Professional Fellows Program (PFP) 2013
In 2013, CECEM and the Mansfield Center of The University of Montana started the professional fellows program sponsored by the U.S. Embassy. The Economic Empowerment Program focuses on expanding economic opportunity to broader society, with the goals of increasing incomes and reducing poverty.

CECEM and the Mansfield Center of the University of Montana are honored to partner with the U.S. Government in seeking applicants for the Professional Fellows Program. The program is sponsored by the U.S. Embassy in Hanoi and the U.S. Consulate in Ho Chi Minh City.  The focus of the program is organizational management. This program aims to promote mutual understanding, enhance leadership and professional skills, and build sustainable partnerships between emerging leaders from foreign countries and the U.S. We are seeking young leaders, ages 25 to 35, working in development organizations, to apply for this exciting program.

During the five-week program in the U.S, participants will gain firsthand knowledge of how organizations and institutions operate, and participating in site visits and specially-designed seminars. Participants will be matched with a similar organization in Montana and work with an American counterpart for one month. The deadline for receipt of applications is 15 April 2017.

Professional Fellows Program (PFP) 2014
Based on the great results of EEP 2013, in this year, up to six Vietnamese had chance to join the program in Montana.

Vietnamese fellows of 2014 EEP are mid-level managers and top leaders of business companies, NGOs and lectures of Universities. Four of them finished their wonderful Spring exchange program in the U.S in May with lots of hands-on knowledge and experience in economic empowerment. Currently, two other Vietnamese fellows are enjoying the Autumn program in Montana and Washington D.C

Vietnamese will soon receive their American fellows coming to our country for exchanging experience.
