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 excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I get to help others around me. I find happiness in being kind and using my talents to change lives. It matters to me that we educate the generations after us continuously so that this world is always abundant with global citizens who will do their best to move our world towards peace and love.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: LIFE Skills Initiative
LIFE Skills Initiative aims to work with Title I high schools in the Charlotte Mecklenburg area to give students opportunities to learn more about life skills that will help with their future. As the acronym LIFE implies, we aim to teach these students about lifestyle, interpersonal, financial, and educational skills that they can use indefinitely. We hope to reach out to seven high schools, teaching roughly 8,830 students these LIFE skills that they may not be able to learn about at school or at home. By reaching out to these students, we hope the impact will be big enough that they can break the poverty cycle that encircles them. We hope to change the futures of these students, helping them to take a different path than what would normally be expected of them.
