We strive to ensure the makeup of our programs represents the diversity of our city and our classes are kept intentionally small (25-30) to encourage self-exploration and team building. The program curriculum divides its time between personal leadership development and community action.
Our next Fellows cohort will begin in April and the sessions will primarily be in the morning. You can view the upcoming calendar here.
If you have any questions about the Fellows curriculum or its application process, please contact email@example.com.
