Children and Family Fellowship Overview

By the Annie E. Casey Foundation

January 1, 2012


Investments in programs and system reform initiatives alone have been insufficient to accelerate measurable and lasting improvements in child and family well-being. Acting on this ambition, the Casey Foundation developed the Children and Family Fellowship, a 20-month executive leadership program for accomplished professionals. The Fellowship strives to increase the pool of diverse, visionary leaders with the confidence and competence to lead and sustain major system reforms and community change initiatives that benefit large numbers of children and families.
