FY 18 Approvals 


FY18-51- NARALO – Global Indigenous Persons Mentorship Program In support of Fellowships as proposed
FY18 Additional Community Budget Request Explanations

Request for global Indigenous Persons Mentorship Program In support of Fellowships
(Yes)(18,000)(Janice Douma Lange)
Based on reports of the success of the FY17 implementation of this pilot program, the pilot program is resourced to continue in FY18. Travel for two tribal ambassadors and one mentor for ICANN60 and ICANN61 public meetings is authorized, following the already established fellowship program criteria including selection of applicants and mentor (coach criteria). Community to identify a single At Large mentor to serve as a coach for the ambassadors. If possible, the At Large mentor to come from among existing/expected experienced attendees at the meeting.
ICANN Org has recommended more transparency on recruitment of ambassadors and adjustment of success metrics to include - progress toward a native community At Large Structure (ALS). Additional conditions of this allocation are: (1) At Large mentor to follow the guidelines of the Community Mentor Pilot Program to introduce ambassadors to ICANN and the ICANN Meeting - from approximately six weeks prior to ICANN Meeting, act as the ambassadors’ “one-on-one” guide through the ICANN experience during Meeting week, and follow up beyond the Meeting to further guide continued knowledge and engagement; (2) ambassadors to participate in the ICANN Newcomer Sunday meeting with PRS team representative who will be facilitating the session to ensure inclusion; (3) ambassadors to participate in the Fellowship Morning sessions Monday through Thursday in order to gain overall ICANN experience and understanding of its multistakeholder community; and (4) both At Large mentor and ambassadors to submit detailed report within 30 days of the relevant ICANN public meeting that addresses activities at the meeting and assessment of experience. These reports will help in assessment of future pilot efforts. Report to be submitted to: Unused travel slots cannot carry over. Approved travel includes: economy airfare + hotel + per diem.

FY18-50- NARALO – First North American School of Internet Governance (NASIG)
To organize and deliver the First North American School of Internet Governance two days before the commencement of ICANN 61 in March 2018
(Yes-Core)(0)(Chris Mondini)
Local outreach is a reliable strategy that has been employed by ICANN's regional teams for several years. Outreach activities have been successfully supported and organized by ICANN's regional teams many times. NARALO is encouraged to collaborate directly with the North American regional team to explore implementing this proposal consistent with the current ICANN Meetings Strategy.
