What are the desired outcomes of the program?

To increase the pool of leaders with the vision and ability to frame and sustain major system reforms and community capacity-building initiatives that benefit large numbers of children and families. To do so, the program aims to broaden the visions, expand the knowledge, enhance the leadership capacities, enlarge the networks, and increase the confidence of its Fellows.

Does the program serve a specific population?

We seek people who are committed to achieving better outcomes for children, families, and communities. We seek talented, accomplished, and ambitious professionals from across the country who want to strengthen public and nonprofit systems in ways that make them more reliable, equitable, effective, and efficient.
