The Stoneleigh Foundation’s mission is to improve life outcomes for our community’s most vulnerable youth by advancing change in the systems that serve them. We award two types of Fellowships—the Stoneleigh Fellowship and Emerging Leader Fellowship—to exceptional leaders who work within and alongside these systems to catalyze change.
Stoneleigh Fellows come from a diverse array of backgrounds—they are attorneys, educators, physicians, public policy experts, program administrators, researchers, social workers, and more.
