Fellowship Highlights

We prepare fellows to succeed during the fellowship and rise to higher levels of child welfare leadership upon completion. As a fellow, expect to grow as a leader and innovator and learn child welfare content from renowned experts.


Drive social change. Fellows work on high-impact reform projects with measurable impact that position them as leaders within the agency. The results of their projects are not just valuable to that jurisdiction, but are designed to be scalable to address challenges nationwide.

Learn quickly. Prior to the start of the fellowship, fellows receive an intensive training on results-driven leadership, human-centered design, and child welfare, with the chance to learn from a national faculty including top leaders in the field and stakeholders in the child welfare care system.

Join a supportive network. Fellows meet quarterly for ongoing training with their cohort each quarter.

Receive ongoing professional development. Fellows receive support from their supervisor, a child welfare mentor, and an executive coach.
