Fellows is the premiere community-wide leadership development experience for mid-career leaders in Memphis. With a history that spans over 15 years, Fellows is designed for high-performing professionals who are already excelling in their careers and positively impacting our community, but who are seeking to amplify that power through access to new connections, skills and experiences.

Curriculum Information

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 September 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 kaylon@newmemphis.org.
