White-Riley-Peterson Policy Fellowship

Developing policy leaders for afterschool and expanded learning

October 7-12, 2018

The Riley Institute welcomes to Greenville its seventh class, Class of 2018-19, of White-Riley-Peterson Policy Fellows who, beginning in October 2018 will spend ten months studying afterschool and expanded learning policy and developing state-level policy plans in partnership with their State Afterschool Networks and the National Afterschool Alliance.

Meet the 2018-19 class!

Sixteen leaders in the field of afterschool and expanded learning nationwide have been selected as White-Riley-Peterson (WRP) Policy Fellows as part of a partnership between the Riley Institute at Furman University and the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.

The new class of WRP Policy Fellows brings the total number of program participants to 106 since the initiative was launched in 2012.
