NYU Leadership Fellows
Turn Ideas Into Action
The NYU Leadership Fellows Program is a year-long opportunity that prepares undergraduate students to take action on projects that provide service to a community.
Leading Projects with Impact
Do you have a great project idea for social impact but aren’t sure how to get it off the ground? Do you need help learning to develop, pitch and implement a project?
The Leadership Fellows Program is a project incubator, helping students turn their ideas into action. Through skill-building workshops, “lab” sessions to apply those skills and individualized coaching, students develop a project through its full life-cycle. The fall semester covers project development and pitching for funding while the spring semester focuses on project implementation, evaluation and presentation.
Students leave the program with:
- Purpose: An increased awareness of their individual purpose by contributing to a community that resonates with their personal, academic or extracurricular interests
- Networks: An expanded network of peers, academic contacts and professionals that support their strategic direction
- Engagement: An increased sense of engagement at NYU and the capacity to create impact on their target audience or community
- Narratives: An increased confidence in their ability to share narratives that move themselves and others into action
