David Miller, former Stein Fellowship chair and Tocqueville Society mentor
The Fellowship Program is a year-long immersive leadership and mentorship experience. Each fall, a Stein Fellow cohort is selected through an extensive application, interview and recommendation process. Each Fellow is paired with an Achievers For Life (AFL) middle-school student for mentorship through the calendar school year. In turn, a member of United Way’s most prestigious giving society, the Tocqueville Society, is matched with a Stein Fellow to further develop and hone professional skills and cultivate relationships toward their shared goal of giving back.
The fellowship is framed within the context of David and Linda Stein’s desire to build a stronger community through multi-generational relationships and by using United Way’s core values and creating a legacy of leaders in our community. It is focused on identifying, engaging and developing a diverse group of young professionals who have a desire to prepare for success through a philanthropic lens.
Upon graduation, participants join a global and robust community of tight-knit young professionals who are committed to their community and their philanthropic passions.
Upon acceptance of the fellowship, all fellows will receive a calendar of events for the upcoming year. It is the expectation that since these dates have been shared ahead of time, this should allow for minimal absences throughout the program.
A selection committee of Stein Fellowship alumni and Tocqueville Society members will review applications. All applicants are requested to do the following:
