Addressing the Issues
Andrew Goodman Fellows develop actionable public policy advocacy projects focused on addressing civic policy, voting rights, or social justice issues at the local, state, or regional level. Each Andrew Goodman Fellow chooses an issue that would help expand political and social equity in the United States and develops a plan that is high civic impact, well-informed, ethically crafted, and feasible.
Developing the Leaders of Today
Oftentimes young people are seen as the leaders of tomorrow, but at The Andrew Goodman Foundation, we believe they are the leaders of today. Andrew Goodman Fellows are emerging civic leaders who are passionate about public policy and community organizing. As a part of the two-year fellowship, Andrew Goodman Fellows receive ongoing training and advising on problem-solving, strategic planning, and implementation, developing them into life-long civic leaders.
Building and Sharing Success
Andrew Goodman Fellows work to create tangible solutions to the issue of their choice. Fellows are supported to develop partnerships with individuals and organizations where appropriate to create the most robust, effective, and community-centered plans possible. To ensure their success, Andrew Goodman Fellows quantitatively and qualitatively evaluate their effectiveness and publish their findings and recommendations to help others get involved.
