Stoneleigh Emerging Leader Fellowship

Posted on December 21, 2015

Seeking Applicants for Emerging Leader Fellowship Program!

The Stoneleigh Emerging Leader Fellowship provides a hands-on experience for young professionals interested in addressing the needs of Greater Philadelphia’s most vulnerable youth through policy analysis, research, or advocacy. Fellows work collaboratively with a host organization to shape and execute a discrete project that simultaneously advances the mission of the organization and provides the Fellow with the opportunity to gain new skills and experiences.

This is a full-time, grant-funded position that provides salary, benefits and a stipend to enable the Fellow to take advantage of professional development opportunities. The Fellow will be part of a vibrant local network of professionals focused on social justice and cross-systems reform to improve the life outcomes of vulnerable children and youth. These Fellowships are funded for one year, with the potential for an extension for one additional year; they will begin between July 1 and September 1, 2016.

Please spread the word about these exciting opportunities to interested students and colleagues!
