YP4’s leadership development model is rooted in a lifelong commitment to the young people who come through the program. YP4 does not invest for a few months or even just a year; YP4 invests for a lifetime.
YP4’s Advanced Leadership and Alumni programs ensure the relationships made and work completed during the Fellowship are sustained and supported for the long term. YP4’s alumni network, made up of nearly 1,500 progressive leaders, cultivates and supports the newest generation of progressive leaders by serving as mentors and trainers, by nominating and selecting our Fellowship class each year, and much more. Alumni have access to a wide array of resources for continued personal and professional development, including our Alumni Board, an online Career Center, Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College Public Policy Scholarship (awarded to public policy and management graduate students at Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College who have completed YP4 programs), the Front Line Leaders Academy, and more.
