Is This Your Year to Join The Journey?
The Journey is now accepting applications for two of it’s award-winning fellowship programs, both focused on strengthening and renewing youth development professionals in the state of Indiana. Since 2002, The Journey has been building the field of youth work by supporting the personal and professional development of youth workers in the field. If you are ready, willing and able to invest in yourself over the coming year, please consider applying to one of the programs listed below:
The Executive Journey Fellowship is a year-long program for youth-serving professionals of influence. This program is aimed at experienced professionals who have influence over the lives of other youth workers and the development of the field in Indiana. Executive fellows are in leadership positions within their organizations, are established social entrepreneurs or are master- practitioners who guide and shape the work of others in their agencies and beyond.
The Journey Fellowship for New Professionals in Youth Work is a year-long program for early to mid-career youth workers. Fellows in this program are full-time youth workers, normally in the first ten years of their career in youth work. The New Professionals Fellowship comes alongside leaders who are working to establish and grow their careers in the field.
For Both Fellowships— each year up to 30 leading youth workers are nominated and selected to create a learning community and attend four in-state retreats to invest in their own personal growth and professional development. The intention is to help transform the profession and field of youth work by grounding leaders in who they are, building a professional community, and inspiring the beliefs of those who dream and do on behalf of young people. Fellows from all programs join the larger community of fellows who are students, practitioners and leaders in Indiana and beyond.
