The JP Alumni Fellowship
NOTE: Applications for the 2023-2024 JP Fellowship are now closed.
Central to the alumni network is the Jeremiah Program Alumni Fellowship (JPF), a selective, yearlong, cohort-based leadership program.
JP fellows are leaders who see being a great mom as their most important job.
JP fellows are excited about the opportunity to be a part of a learning community as they navigate inflection points in their personal and professional lives.
JP fellows care deeply about their communities and are excited about the opportunity to advance solutions that support economic mobility, public policy, and two-generation programming for single mothers and their children experiencing poverty by exploring their leadership journey.
The one-year fellowship program is comprised of four seminars focused on leadership development, economic mobility, public policy, and two-generation programming under the guidance of expert facilitators.
Each JP fellows cohort will be given the opportunity to influence and design the content and location of the final public policy seminar.
