The FAO Schwarz Fellowship trains recent college graduates for leadership roles in the world of social impact by offering a transformative 2-year experience that includes a paid position with a leading nonprofit, personalized mentoring, and extensive professional development experiences. Fellows will be based at organizations in Boston, Philadelphia or New York City.
Through the fellowship, Fellows deepen their knowledge and understanding of relevant social issues, work directly with host communities, and lead strategic projects that strengthen the host organization’s capacity and impact. Each year, Fellows attend leadership retreats to learn about the social impact sector, develop critical skills and build relationships with— and learn from— current and alumni FAO Schwarz fellows.
In addition to one-on-one meetings with a supervisor, every Fellow has a mentor who offer support and guidance over the course of their Fellowship, and Fellows also join a valuable network of current and alumni Fellows, as well as leaders from host organizations.
