UWS Fellows commit one year, full-time, to providing poor and marginalized children with the opportunities that can put them on a different life path. Each Fellow is assigned a classroom in one of UWS’s schools and asked to give their students the skills they need to reach their personal goals. Our Leadership Development Journey will revolve around the following four areas:
Personal Development Exploring who you are, what is your goal in life, and how you strive to be a better person.
Community Transformation Exploring shared values with the community that can inspire them to act together and find hope for positive change
Collective Action Building relationships and organizing partners to effectively mobilize and deploy resources in a way that multiplies and deepens our impact
Educational Equity Deepening the understanding of Nepal’s education system and committing to work towards equality
With these four commitments, our fellows will gain real-life leadership experiences in classrooms and communities, developing their professional skills and gaining valuable life skills.
