" I am so thrilled to be a part of this amazing cohort as my vision to help underserved communities locally were expanded to a global perspective when I encountered this Fellowship program. My envisioned goals were always tailored to the needs of my local community. The Millennium Fellowship aids our projects to meet the needs of the global community by ensuring we comply with their UN Academic principles. I know by being a Millennium Fellow, not only will my project soar and be impactful but my skills and personal development will also sky-rocket as I'll be guided through sustainable development goals and principles with the amazing addition of collaboration with familiar peers and foreign ones as well!

Millennium Fellowship Project: Hope for Unaccompanied Youth
The website would give resources to the general public with lists of food banks, churches that provide clothing, domestic violence and regular housing shelters, hospitals, and a 24/7 mental health chat as well as a 24/7 emergency chat for those that find themselves in houseless emergencies. In the website there would be a portion dedicated to an online portal, each youth who enters the DCF foster youth or homeless systems would be given accounts that facilitate access to education, specifically higher education, through lists of school programs, scholarships, tutoring, etc. The portal would also provide links to homeless youth advocacy councils, internship opportunities, and opportunities for those with lived experience in systems to learn advocacy and community service. The subscription to the portal would be free to the consumers, but the membership to the services would be that all youth must complete a minimum of 20 community service hours per semester, or 10 hours a month.
