THE FELLOWSHIP INITIATIVE
About the Program
The Fellowship Initiative, in partnership with JP Morgan Chase, is building a diverse community of young men of color from across Chicago who possess a broad range of skills and experiences.
This 3-year leadership development program is designed to support rising High School sophomores in earning their degree from an accredited 4-year college or university.
Our program is committed to providing these young men of color with the support necessary to achieve the academic excellence and professional success that leads to greater economic mobility.
The Four Pillars of TFI
Career and College Readiness
The Fellowship Initiative exposes young men of color to career and college exploration opportunities, work readiness training and step by step support in navigating the college admissions process.
By participating in The Fellowship Initiative, young men of color have the opportunity to build a strong network with other young leaders in the program and professionals from multiple career sectors.
The Fellowship Initiative provides individualized tutoring support for each fellow, SAT and ACT prep through The Princeton Review, along with academic coaching and advocacy.
Every TFI Fellow is matched 1:1 with a mentor from JP Morgan Chase and receives training in leadership, civic engagement, and financial literacy.
