Revive the Dream Institute Fellowship

The Revive the Dream Institute is a nine-month NYC-based fellowship program that recruits emerging community leaders and develops them into education reform catalysts to improve the life prospects of our students. Fellows meet one evening a month to learn about a topic in the education space and hear from speakers close to the issue. In the latter half of the year, fellows also take on a volunteer project with a partner organization as an experiential learning opportunity. We are currently looking for members for our 2019-2020 cohort. The application deadline for the program is August 20, 2019 at midnight EST.

Each cohort of 20-25 fellows is comprised of dedicated change agents who bring diverse experiences and perspectives to the group, and we’re looking for truly exciting candidates for the next cohort of the program.

Check out our website and our FAQs to learn more about the program http://rtdinstitute.org/.
