2019 Akili Fellows Program
The Akili Fellowship is a 9-month program (April-Dec), designed to transform the way youth development providers support youth of color. The fellowship is based on the Radical Healing model, which was developed by Dr. Shawn Ginwright and focuses on transformative leadership and healing centered approaches to support youth. This model uniquely melds together transformative youth development, social justice principles, personal healing, and cultural transformation.
Fellows engage in a 9-month transformational experience to build their leadership. The fellowship has 3 components, each component is broken down by quarter. During the first quarter Fellows will receive 50 hours of healing centered training. These skills will be applied quarter 2 during the Camp Akili summer camp experience. During the last quarter, Fellows will engage in post-Camp Akili mentoring sessions with youth.
