Philly Fellowship offers a year-long fellowship that connects top college graduates to dynamic nonprofit opportunities while developing their leadership and professional skills and engaging them in the city's vibrant communities. Philly Fellows is designed to be more than just a connection to a great job for a year. Our goal is for the fellows to develop more skills and engage with the nonprofit sector and the city as a whole more deeply than they would have in a typical entry-level nonprofit job. 

The program brings together the nonprofit, college, government, and business sectors to accomplish the dual mission of strengthening the city's cultural, educational and social-service organizations and build the next generation of civic leadership. For the fellows, the program facilitates the transition between college and full-time employment in Philadelphia through service-based employment, housing, and exciting opportunities to network and get involved in the city. For nonprofit organizations, Philly Fellows provides educated, motivated employees to engage in critical full-time capacity-building projects. For the city of Philadelphia, Philly Fellows strengthens our city's vital nonprofit agencies, builds stronger and more just communities, and develops future civic leaders.

Specific Eligibility Criteria

  • Due to AmeriCorps regulations, Philly Fellows must be US Citizens or Permanent Residents.
