They will participate in a variety of professional development workshops and opportunities designed to build community leadership skills and support success in school and beyond.

This year, the Futures Initiative is pleased to announce a partnership with the Promise and Perils of Democracy project supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. In addition to the focus on leadership and peer mentoring, the 2019-2020 fellowship program cohort will address questions of democracy and informed public engagement.
