The Rising Leaders Fellowship supports the professional development of individuals in entry- to mid-level positions within youth-serving outdoor programs. Specifically, Youth Outside targets individuals who are enthusiastic about connecting youth to the outdoors in culturally relevant and inclusive ways by effecting culture change within their organizations. The Rising Leaders Fellowship builds professional capacity while creating a supportive network of like-minded leaders through a project-based cohort series that focuses on social justice and equity in the outdoors.
This year, through generous support from the Applied Materials Fund, the Rising Leaders Fellowship takes place in the South Bay.
We are proud to introduce the members of the 2019 Rising Leaders Fellowship!
