Newman's Own Foundation Fellowship Program
Newman’s Own Foundation places considerable emphasis on mentoring and training emerging young leaders by providing opportunities in the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors.
In 2015, the first formal class of Newman’s Own Foundation Fellows was created. This program gives young people valuable, real-world experience, which provides insight into the historically significant role of the philanthropic sector in society and helps them learn about opportunities that they may not otherwise discover.
Following its first two successful years, the Fellowship Program has expanded to 17 Fellows in 2017-2018. The Fellows are selected based on demonstrated leadership skills, as well as commitment to social issues and community development. Throughout the year they attend workshops and programs to help them further develop a sense of civic responsibility, cultivate a deeper understanding of philanthropy, learn new skills, and help connect their values and passions to career choices.
In addition to the Fellowship program, Newman's Own Foundation provides grants to organizations such as Echoing Green, Net Impact, Campus Compact, and Social Enterprise Greenhouse, helping to empower young adults who are brimming with energy to change the world.
