The Millennial Public Policy Fellowship at New America is designed for enterprising, mission-driven young adults looking to work on the next big public policy challenges facing their generation.
This fellowship creates opportunities for new and diverse voices to contribute to future public policy discussions. New America, with the generous support of the Citi Foundation's Pathways to Progress initiative, seeks to invest in some of the most promising young minds in the country; to deepen exposure to contemporary public policy and issue areas; to create valuable professional development experiences that will support their growth as future leaders, critical thinkers, and policy entrepreneurs; and to incubate and advance ideas that are capable of transforming policy systems for the better.
Our Millennial Fellows are embedded in one of New America’s public policy programs, headquartered in Washington, D.C., where they provide policy research support and collaborate with their cohort of fellows to explore the dynamics of a generational policy agenda. Each fellow is paired with a mentor, contributes to the work of the program, and pursues a personalized project under the direction of New America staff. The cohort meets regularly with their peers to participate in seminar-style sessions where they will share learnings, hear from a range of experts, pursue professional development activities, and work to develop high-impact policy ideas that can engage their peers and add value to a constructive public policy discourse focused on creating solutions to the challenges facing their generation.
New America's Millennial Public Policy Fellowship is supported by the Citi Foundation as part of their Pathways to Progress global approach to prepare urban youth to thrive in today's economy through career readiness opportunities. Pathways to Progress programs include entrepreneurship education, engagement in the formal economy through first jobs, and acquisition of leadership, financial, and workplace skills.
