2020 Young Leader Fellowship


Cities United is accepting applications for the 2020 Young Leader Fellowship in December 2019. The fellowship is an intensive six-month experience, providing the opportunity to engage with local leaders, mentors, and national experts and to deepen knowledge, skills, and networks. Young leaders will gain insights regarding Cities United violence prevention strategies, personal and professional leadership, policy and advocacy, and capacity building.

If you are a Black young adult (18-24 years old), interested in working in violence prevention and excited about working on behalf of Black men and boys, you are encouraged to apply.

Launched in 2011, Cities United is a national movement focused on eliminating the violence in American cities related to African-American men and boys.
