MVP Fellows Program
The MVP Fellows Program is designed to connect Fellows with a multi-layer network of mentors over the course of 3 years to cultivate a personal board of directors to serve as a soundboard as they Prepare, Perform, Progress, Prosper, and Pay it Forward through college and into thriving careers. This intensive 3-year experience begins mid-year during the second year of college for our Fellows and continues as they develop into leaders and change-agents through career exposure, experiential learning through paid internships, and research opportunities, into their first full-time job!
Over the course of the 3-year fellowship, Fellows receive over 100+ hours of college and career support through our monthly workshops, mentorship sessions, internship experiences and other career activities. To begin the program, Fellows jump into crafting a stellar resume, preparing for interviews, and designing an elevator pitch to secure their first fully funded MVP internship opportunity. This preparation happens all while Fellows receive active support from MVP staff to create learning objectives and goals to guide their mentorship journey. Fellows continue to receive mentorship and career development support through college and into their first full-time job. Upon graduation, Fellows become alumni and actively pay it forward as mentors.
