ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM FELLOWSHIP - CLASS OF 2019
United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are proud to partner on the Millennium Fellowship. In the three months the application was open in 2019, over 7,000 young leaders applied to join the Class of 2019 on 1,209 campuses across 135 nations. 69 campuses worldwide (just 6%) were selected to host the 1,092 Millennium Fellows. The Class of 2019 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 978,400 people worldwide this year.
“The Millennium Fellowship is a great opportunity to connect with like minded peers who are passionate about their community. I am inspired by individuals have a vision of the world they want to bring to life and share that vision with others. Hearing their ideas, perspectives, and opinions is exciting and encourages me to complete my own project.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: Empowering College Leaders
My project hopes to empower college students to become local community leaders to create more sustainable, resilient communities. We will build capacity in the students by sharing knowledge, fostering reflexive thinking, building self-efficacy, and giving an opportunity to practice what they learn through the completion of one community-based initiative project (CBIP). The students will participate in 6 workshops, covering topics from leadership to community engagement, and complete 1 CBIP in collaboration with a local elementary school. The hope is that by the end of the program, the students feel empowered and capable enough to start and advance their own community initiatives.
