Future Leaders in Action's mission is to place fellows in youth-oriented nonprofit organizations to implement enrichment programs which cultivate their leadership skills.
Today, it takes more skills to enter the workforce than ever before. This disproportionately impacts young people, people of color, and those from working class families the most. It is necessary to have programs that provide individuals – especially those left out of traditional leadership programs – the opportunity to develop skills that set them apart.
We believe that everyone should have access to growth and leadership opportunities regardless of socioeconomic conditions. Since 2015, our focus has been to cultivate leaders, strengthen nonprofits, and support youth. We do this by recruiting emerging social sector leaders, known as fellows, to work full-time, on-site with one of our partner organizations.
Fellows gain meaningful and impactful work and leadership experience while earning a living wage. Our partners gain the work of a dedicated fellow in one of our program focus areas at no cost to their organization.
Our partners apply and identify a project area they wish to have support in. Together, we place the best-fit candidate with their organization for three months.
