We Seek to Cultivate the Next Generation of Thoughtful Leaders Through Mentorship and Community Engagement in Oceanside, NY and Durham, NC.
Our mission is to promote stronger communities by creating a network of support for current middle and high school students, high school alumni, and their communities.
Vision: A Fellowship Across Time & Space
- The Empowering Education Fellowship seeks high achieving sophomores, juniors and seniors in public high schools interested in making a difference in their community through promoting equity in education. The Fellowship involves two-directional mentoring where Fellows are mentored by alumni from their high school or college students in their community, while simultaneously mentoring ESL students their community's middle school.
- Given the fellowship’s mission and structure, high school students who are newcomers/first-generation, cannot afford private college counseling, and/or whose parents did not graduate from an American college/university would likely benefit the most from what the Fellowship offers.
A Network of Support
By creating strong connections between High School Fellows, alumni and Middle School mentees, this fellowship aspires to create a long-lasting network of support within communities. To further support community development, Fellows have access to a fund which they can use to create positive change in their community within a field they are passionate about.
