What’s Next?

We just completed our 9th Annual National Summit!  Fellows are now working hard and taking what they learned from the National Summit to finalize their Blueprints for Social Justice--their plans for progressive action in their communities.  Please stay tuned to learn more about their projects and the work they're doing.  In case you haven't already, meet the 2013-14 Fellows!

You can see last year’s blueprints here.

For information regarding the entire Fellowship program, take a look at our program model.  

We're building a movement...

The Youth Leadership Programs of People for the American Way Foundation (PFAWF) continue our commitment to life-long leadership development by guaranteeing that the relationships and work completed during the YP4 Fellowship and through the Young Elected Officials Network are sustained and supported over the long-term. Learn more about our advanced leadership opportunities.

The Front Line Leaders Academy (FLLA) is a premier campaign leadership development program offered every year by the Young Elected Officials (YEO) Network and Young People For (YP4) to 20 talented young people from across the country. FLLA provides prospective candidates and campaign leaders the ability to learn from successful political campaign professionals. 

In 2014, the Front Line Leaders Academy is piloting a Los Angeles-based version of our highly successful national leadership development program. With this new local model we will be able to make a significant and intentional impact in advancing the progressive movement in critical communities. We need your help to make this pilot program a success by nominating and recruiting the highest caliber class. Please remember to nominate a dynamic emerging leader and encourage them to apply.
