Noha Mosaad has been working and volunteering in civil society for the past 4 years. Her passion for civic engagement motivated her to travel from her hometown to the capital to explore more opportunities and develop her skills to further serve the community.

Eager to learn, she joined a number of student activities and simulation models which enabled her to develop her leadership capacity and to acquire different set of skills including communication and problem solving. After graduation, she was accepted into the Lazord Fellowship Program. The program helped her develop a wide range of technical skills such as project management, proposal writing and team building. It also allowed her to expand her network of professionals and non-profits in the field of development locally and internationally.

As a fellow, she joined the team of Microsoft CRS as a Project Manager where she focused on providing youth with a full eco-system environment. Noha was directly involved in developing a variety of capacity building workshops in different governorates to equip the participants with essential skills they needed to know about the market and its dynamics. That experience added a lot to her skills such as coordination, organization, content development, relationship management, planning, scheduling and following up skills.

Furthermore, she completed an internship at the Gerhart Center for Civic Engagement and Business Responsibility at the American University in Cairo (AUC). There, Noha worked as a Program Assistant for “Community Lab Program” in cooperation with United States Institute of Peace (USIP). Her work focused on promoting dialogue and collective problem solving among youth from different backgrounds, organizing different trainings and group discussions to enable participants to collaboratively and collectively develop solutions to address different community needs.
