ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM FELLOWSHIP - CLASS OF 2018
United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are proud to partner on the Millennium Fellowship. In the three months the application was open in 2018, students applied to join the Class of 2018 on 285 campuses across 57 nations. 30 campuses worldwide (just 11%) were selected to host the 530 Millennium Fellows in the global pilot this year.
The Class of 2018 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 310,000 people worldwide this year.
“ I known that with this fellowship I’m going to meet a lot more people with the same enthusiasm to make a difference in our community, besides that I hope to learn a lot so I can help my group to grow and touch a lot more people.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Jóvenes Altruistas Pensando en México (JÄLPEM) Project is an association of university students that provides integral assistance to vulnerable communities through multidisciplinary brigades. Their goal is to provide integral medical care (as well as legal, dental, nutritional, psychological and educational) to vulnerable communities who do not have access to them. They aim to reach as much communities as possible with every brigade, and they attempt to do so by facilitating buses to surrounding communities so that they can be transferred to their location and can be helped. Learn more about JÄLPEM by visiting their Facebook and Instagram account.
About the Millennium Fellow
Diana Leija is in her 6th year of medical school and she is an intern at the Hospital Christus Muguerza Alta Especialidad. This is her third year with JÄLPEM and she loves it. She has attended the brigades since her first semester and has always liked this group because it gave her the opportunity to help others and to see the impact that her actions can cause in a person and in a community. That’s why since she had the opportunity to join the group she did it, because she considers that JÄLPEM has the potential to do great things.
