The Fellowship is a semester- or year-long course taught by our hub-site directors. It is designed to help you develop the values, professional skills, and pathways you'll need to succeed in the social impact sector, from performance management to writing grants to reflecting on compassion fatigue. We give you opportunities to network, receive feedback and coaching, and reflect. Download the curriculum for Fall 2016 or click the image to enlarge it.
There are two main categories for the 2016-2017 Fellowship: the in-person Advanced Fellowship and the online Remote Fellowship, which includes both Observer and Ambassador fellowships. The Advanced Fellowship is an accredited, semester long course which includes individualized leadership and career counseling.
The Advanced Fellowship (In Person)
Advanced Fellows participate in person at one of our Hub Sites in Boston, New York City, Miami, or Washington DC, with potential other Hub Sites in development.
This interactive, community-building leadership accelerator is an ideal bootcamp for student leaders aiming to join the global development/social impact sector. They have the opportunity to network in person with top students leaders across campuses and with professionals working in the field, as well as to pitch their organizations' work and earn funding.
Advanced Fellows apply as part of a team of 2-4 student leaders representing a campus-based student organization working to advance one or more of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. They will learn how to improve their organization's operations, funding, and leadership transition, as well as their individual strengths in leadership, partnerships, advocacy, and campus engagement.
Fellows receive 4 Individual Leadership Coaching Sessions throughout the fall and 6 Individual Career Coaching Sessions after the Fellowship has ended. Sessions include a focus on professional skills, reflections, facilitated peer feedback, networking and community building opportunities.
Fellows who successfully complete the fellowship will earn 3 academic credits through Lynn University,a certificate of completion, 6 Career Coaching sessions and access to full alumni resources. Note that it is the Fellow's responsibility to confirm that their university will accept credits from Lynn University.
