Jeremiah Program Fellowship

Experts of our experience. Architects of our solutions.

A Unique Opportunity to Build and Lead a Movement

The JP Fellowship is a network of JP graduate moms who are committed to strengthening JP’s advocacy efforts to push the needle on educational access, workforce development, and youth advocacy programs for families headed by single mother students experiencing poverty.JP alumni moms can offer knowledge and insight that no one else can, and the power of their voices will be amplified to effect change to the systemic barriers that keep women and children in generational poverty.

“It’s time to step aside and give the largest stakeholders in people of color communities—women, often single mothers—the mic and the pen to author policy and agendas.” – Chastity Lord, JP president and CEO
