JOHN LEWIS YOUNG LEADERS FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM JLYL

JOHN LEWIS YOUNG LEADERS FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM JLYL

The John Lewis Young Leaders (JLYL) program is an undergraduate fellowship program that equips students with the necessary skills to become effective social justice and civic leaders. Since its creation in 2017, the Young Leaders program has focused on building the power of young people and supporting them as the next generation of human rights defenders. In 2022 we restructured and rebranded the program to pay homage to the beautiful and inspiring friendship between John Lewis and Robert Kennedy. Both Lewis and Kennedy shared a joint dream of building a more just and equitable future and worked towards one where all young people can see this come to fruition.

College students are prepared for a future in community organising and civic involvement through the year-long JLYL programme. With a comprehensive capstone project, fellows involve their campus and local communities in human rights activities throughout the year. In order to ensure their success in the programme, fellows are provided with tools and resources such as access to in-depth training on grassroots organising, one-on-one mentoring from RFK Human Rights personnel, financial support, and a wide network of peers, human rights professionals, and programme alumni. By giving fellows access to these tools, we hope to increase their ability and self-assurance in order to work as human rights defenders and bring about long-lasting, constructive change in their communities.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

The John Lewis Young Leaders (JLYL) program looks for highly motivated students who are interested in making a career out of organizing work. These students should be self-starters and not afraid to go against the grain. Students should be able to see themselves as human rights defenders and be impact-minded. Most importantly, we look for students who come from marginalized backgrounds and are most often targeted by systemic issues that do not afford them the opportunities and resources needed to become human rights advocates.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA:

  • An undergraduate student
  • Enrolled in a 2 or 4 year accredited program
