Our competency-based curriculum expands Fellows’ skill development and builds networks.

Mission-Driven Internship (Brandeis Fellows)

Paid internships develop understanding of the skills and structure of change based work.

Segal Buddy

Peer mentors welcome Fellows to the Network and support their growth.

Segal Coach

Seasoned mentors provide career and life guidance, sharing their networks and experience.

Fellows Retreat

Bi-annual gatherings bring Fellows and the Network together for development, reflection, and inspiration.

Development Opportunities

Monthly workshops and annual professional development funds support ongoing professional development.

Lifetime Network

Bonds with other Fellows, Founders, and Network partners are fostered and called on over a lifetime.

Giving Back

Fellows reinvest in the Program as mentors, volunteers, fundraisers, internship hosts, and in other ways.

I gained a level of career exposure and experience that I didn’t expect to have for another 20 years. This Program connected me to my dream project and some of my personal heroes.” – Sylvia Stewart, MPP'18, 2017 Segal Fellow
