The ELLA Fellowship offers young women and gender-expansive youth ages 16 to 22 in-depth project development and leadership training while they design and implement a meaningful and ambitious social justice-based project to address a need they have identified in their own community.
Throughout the nine-month fellowship, each Fellow receives specialized and professionally guided monthly retreats, a budget for project implementation, and the full support of the SNLP community throughout the program. The goals are to expand young women’s understanding of leadership, to deepen their program management skills, and to enhance young women’s confidence, resourcefulness, and creativity, as well as their potential for effective community leadership. ELLA is named for social activist, Ella Baker, and stands for Engage, Learn, Lead and Act. It is also means “she” in Spanish.
Applications are due by Sunday, September 23rd.
