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.
“I am beyond excited to be a Millennium Fellow, as I have always wanted to help people in a bigger way, and this is the perfect opportunity for me to do so! I have a strong passion for helping those experiencing homelessness and drive for creating a lasting impact on a community, and the Millennium Fellowship has granted me the chance to change the world in a unique and profound way.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: Care Cards
Care Cards provide those experiencing homeless a resource that shows all of the services offered in the upstate South Carolina community. Many of the people do not know all of the resources available for them, and Care Cards would provide valuable information to best benefit the people on the street. For instance, the Care Cards would have phone numbers, street addresses, and availability times for many services pertaining to food, jobs, medical services, housing, clothing, and transportation. Shelters, Churches and other organizations could hand these cards out to people to best connect them to the resource they need. This semester, I hope to connect with at least 15 local non-profits, have 20 university students become passionately involved in this project, and raise enough money to print our first batch of Care Cards by January!
