During my first year with the City Scholars® Fellowship for Education, we grew our reach from 11,000 to 15,000 young people and from 59% low-income to 65% low-income. City Scholars® keeps me focused on reaching the young people we want to impact, as opposed to simply reaching more people.

Our IMPACT Strategy =

LEARNING + COLLABORATION + ACCOUNTABILITY

Our City Scholars®Fellowship for Education inspires, challenges, equips and encourages a diverse yet extraordinarily collaborative community of nonprofit CEOs, who are distinguished as City Scholars® Foundation Fellows, through our:

CEO ESSENTIALS® ToolKit
Annual Fellowship Kick-Off
Monthly Fellowship Roundtables
Annual Fellowship Retreat
1:1 Leadership Coaching
Business & Peer Mentoring
Leadership Challenges
Networking with High-Impact Leaders

Our CEO ESSENTIALS® for Effective Nonprofits offer a practical, comprehensive and proven effective playbook for building and leading mission-focused, impact-driven, well-balanced, highly efficient and sustainable organizations.

Learning they are not alone in the challenges they face as nonprofit CEOs, our Foundation Fellows return to their offices with renewed energy, focus and dedication.

Our Fellowship is tuition-free. But, it is no free lunch.

We support and hold our Foundation Fellows accountable for turning LEARNING into LEADERSHIP and KNOWLEDGE into ACTION that measurably improves educational opportunities and outcomes for more than 57,000 predominantly low-income, pre-K to college, ethnically diverse youth each year throughout the Greater Los Angeles region.

Over the last four years with the City Scholars® Fellowship for Education, I’ve become much more confident as an Executive Director.  As a result, we’ve  grown our budget from $630,000 to $920,000. I would not have been able to lead such continuous and sustainable growth without the Fellowship.  The best part is we’re providing better services to our youth.
