The Fellowship program is a year-long training program for young leaders that have completed, at minimum, their undergraduate degrees by the start of the program. Fellows are assigned to specific program areas and develop expertise with the direction of a Program Manager and the Academy Director. Although the curriculum is similar to that of the Associates program, Fellows are given more responsibility and independence to implement projects and programs.
As part of their work at Greenlining, Fellows receive intensive training to prepare them for policy work at the highest level, which includes:
*Participating in leadership skills workshops
*Attending power lunch series with key stakeholders
*Conducting site visits to community, government, and corporate entities
Additionally, Fellows receive regular professional and personal skill development and are given opportunities to interact with the media, write reports/press releases, fundraise, testify at key policy hearings, and participate in key meetings with top government officials, corporate CEOs, and political leaders.
Application deadline is commonly in February. Visit funder website for more information.
