The Fellowship.

The Fellowship is a two-month development opportunity designed for young, emerging leaders who are passionate about creating positive social and environmental change.

Throughout this program, Fellows collaborate with their peers, educational institutions, YIP impact branch executives, and other community stakeholders to develop and propose innovative solutions to current issues in a wide variety of mediums. Fellows will work with their peers, host other organizations, and mentors to gain a deeper understanding of the various sub-sectors related to their overall field of focus while also honing their project management, policy analysis, and development skills.

Fellows will work on numerous fronts, focus on social change, urban renewal, public policy reform, SMART infrastructure/technology initiatives, and education in order to create a brighter and collaborative future for all.
