WE WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW THAT THE WHITE-RILEY-PETERSON POLICY FELLOWSHIP IS MOVING ITS FALL CONVENING TO A VIRTUAL GATHERING. To ensure the safety of all participants, the Riley Institute at Furman University, in partnership with the Mott Foundation, has decided to move the Fellowship to an online format this fall. While dates are still being finalized, we can confirm that the Fellowship will begin on Sunday, September 27, with a virtual welcome reception in the evening. The program content will begin on Monday, September 28 in the afternoon. It is likely that the program will then meet weekly for five weeks, and dates will be confirmed by the end of June. It’s our hope to convene Fellows in person at Furman in June of 2021 for several days of learning and graduation.

NOMINATIONS CAN BE MADE BY NETWORK LEADS AND WILL CLOSE MAY 15, 2020, AT 11:59 PM. View the nomination form HERE.

PROGRAM DETAILS: The White-Riley-Peterson Policy Fellowship develops emerging leaders in the field of afterschool and expanded learning. Never have advocates been needed more as we encounter incredible learning loss as a result of Covid-19. Please consider nominating a member of your Network’s staff or advisory board — or a leader from a strong partner organization — who can help advance the policy work of the Network. The Fellowship will begin in late summer with pre-work and pre-reading. The virtual convening will take place in September and October, followed by monthly webinars from November 2020 through June 2021. Fellows will gather together at the 50 State National Network meeting in Washington, D.C. in April. As noted above, we are currently planning to gather Fellows in Greenville, S.C. at Furman University in June 2021 for course content focused on policy leadership going forward and graduation.
