In addressing expressed interest from Civic Leadership Academy alumni to offer an additional focus on leadership theory, the Jefferson is proud to introduce the Raimy Fellowship Program. Raimy Fellows will study leadership and apply their knowledge to a practical policy problem in the local region and emerge prepared to assume an enhanced role in their organization and in the community.
As the culmination of their work, linking their research to the overall Leadership Academy group-action project, Fellows will produce a publishable, research-based action-agenda guiding civic engagement with the issue explored in the Civic Leadership Academy’s group-action project.
Those who complete the program will be designated Raimy Fellows on their Civic Leadership Academy certificate, potentially have the Jefferson Educational Society publish their project essay, and join the facilitator and others on a trip to Washington, D.C., to visit several policy institutes, research foundations, and to enjoy a tour of Capitol Hill and some of the capital’s monuments and other attractions.
Facilitator of the Raimy Fellowship Program is JES Scholar-in-Residence , Dr. Andrew Roth.
