The Miami Fellows program is designed to engage a new generation of leaders in building a Greater Miami.
We will identify people who are inspired by our community's potential, have demonstrated leadership and have the dedication to do more. Our dynamic community will serve as a learning laboratory for the 15-month experience. Fellows will develop a deeper understanding of personal leadership styles while learning more about the important issues facing Miami. Along the way, they will connect with the men and women heading our most influential organizations and create lasting relationships. This collective experience will inspire Class VII to engage and give back.
Miami Fellows Class VII will build on the legacy of the program that began in 1999. Since then, nearly 120 people have participated. The program focuses on building Fellows’ knowledge, networks and abilities and increasing their community engagement and impact. That could mean Fellows pursue civic, public service or elected positions; work for better policies or practices to solve community problems; or speak out on issues and mobilize others. Whatever path they choose, our goal is for Fellows to lead toward a greater Miami.
We are grateful to the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and John S. and James L. Knight Foundation for their support of Miami Fellows.
