The Tunisian American Alumni Network (TAAN) organized on February 18 and 19, a capacity building workshop in Sfax for USG exchange program alumni from various programs representing several different regions of Tunisia. The workshop covered personal and professional development skills including communication skills, public speaking, debate, and argumentation. The second part of the workshop was devoted to project planning and development. Alumni learned the different steps of proposal writing, which some plan to put to use right away as they apply for the 2017 Alumni Engagement Innovation Fund 2017 (AEIF). The workshop also offered networking opportunities among the participants themselves and with TAAN board members.
