2018-2019 Fellows

NNAAC is excited to present the 2018-2019 class of the Transformative Leaders Fellowship Program! 

NNAAC’s Transformative Leaders Fellowship Program increases the capacity of our human service member organizations to provide additional support to their communities, while at the same time develop crucial leadership skills in the fellows themselves. The program engages college students and/or recent graduates over a nine-month placement with a NNAAC member organization. Fellows are recruited by NNAAC members locally, and in partnership with universities.
