The Obama Foundation Fellows are a diverse set of community-minded rising stars – organizers, inventors, artists, entrepreneurs, educators, and more – who model the powerful truth that we each have an important role to play in civic life. By engaging their communities to work together in new and meaningful ways, Obama Foundation Fellows are leading transformational change on many of the world’s most pressing problems.
The two-year, non-residential Fellowship offers hands-on training, resources, and leadership development to equip Fellows to scale the impact of their work. Fellows participate in four multi-day gatherings where they collaborate with each other, connect with potential partners, and collectively push their work forward. Throughout the program, each Fellow pursues a personalized plan to leverage Fellowship resources to take their work to the next level.
