FELLOWS


LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE

In 2012, 10,000 Degrees launched the Fellowship Program in which recent college graduates work full-time in our College Success programs. Starting in our partner high schools and continuing through college, 10,000 Degrees Fellows pair up with our college advisors to gain hands-on leadership experience as they support students and their families. By 2021, through strategic partnerships and the generous support of donors, we plan to expand our Fellowship Program to more than 50 participants.
