What is the Leadership Longevity Fellowship?

The Leadership Longevity Fellowship (LLF) is bringing together mission-driven professionals across the United States for an innovative new leadership development program focused on career and life design, mental health and wellness, and creating a supportive community of peers.

This program uses a lens of longevity because we know that in order for you to do work that changes the world, you need support that helps you build lifelong skills and sustain your energy in order to continue impacting the communities you serve.
