• What is the Fellowship program?

Posted May 15, 2014 by Guest Author

The YP4 Fellowship program provides an opportunity for progressive young people to develop leadership skills and to connect with a network of other progressive leaders, while creating meaningful social change in their communities. The yearlong program provides each Fellow with:

  • Personalized leadership development
  • Trainings on social justice, power analysis, and organizing
  • Tactical trainings on skills like fundraising, media outreach, and budgeting
  • Networking and community-building opportunities
  • Support to implement a self-designed project in their community (a Blueprint for Social Justice)
  • Professional development support and mentorship after the Fellowship year

We select 100-150 young people from across the country for each Fellowship Class.
