Emerging Leader Fellowship

The Stoneleigh Emerging Leader Fellowship provides a hands-on experience for early career professionals interested in addressing the needs of Greater Philadelphia’s most vulnerable youth through policy analysis, research, or advocacy.  Fellows work collaboratively with a host organization to execute a discrete project that simultaneously advances the mission of the organization and provides the Fellow with the opportunity to gain new skills and experiences.

This is a full-time, two-year Fellowship that provides salary, benefits, and a stipend for professional development.  Stoneleigh staff work closely with Fellows to amplify the impact of their projects, enhance their professional networks, and grow their leadership skills.  Fellows are supported by their cohort of Emerging Leaders, who together participate in Foundation-led learning opportunities and programming.  The Fellow also becomes a lifelong member of Stoneleigh’s network of Fellows and alumni – a committed group of social justice leaders working across systems to improve the life outcomes of vulnerable children and youth.
