Policy Fellowship

The Fellowship Program is a year-long training program for young leaders who 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. Each Fellowship experience is unique and is shaped by the current policy focus of their program area. Although the curriculum is similar to that of the Associates program, Fellows are given more responsibility and independence to implement projects and programs. The learning environment is based on combining experiential learning opportunities, individual development and team participation.

Fellows participate in leadership and skills development workshops, attend meetings with key stakeholders, and conduct site visits to community, government, and corporate entities. Fellows receive regular mentorship, professional and personal skill development, and are given opportunities to interact with the media, write reports/press releases, fundraise, testify at policy hearings, and participate in key meetings with top government officials, corporate CEOs, and political leaders.

Fellows participate in personal and professional development workshops that teach participants essential skills that will strengthen their capacity to contribute to their Greenlining experience as well as enhance their future opportunities.
