National Partners

The Fox Leadership Program partners with a number of national non-profit and civic-minded organizations. These organizations tend to be based out of Washington D.C. or New York City and focus on pressing issues that impact the entire country. Our national work has tended to involve supporting organizations tackling issues related to racial justice, civil rights, youth empowerment, and federal governance issues. With each of our national partners, we sponsor a number of experiential fellowships for undergraduate students over the summer that pair Penn students with the leaders of their respective organizations.
