Foster America Fellow

Foster America

About the organization

Foster America imagines a different future for child welfare - one in which the nation's brightest minds and greatest talents devote themselves to transforming life outcomes for children who are orphaned, abused, or neglected.


The Foster America Fellowship is an opportunity to radically improve the lives of our nation’s
most vulnerable children by designing and implementing innovative solutions to some of the
foster care system’s most complex problems. Fellows apply the skills they have cultivated in
other sectors as they transition to full-time, 18-month positions at child welfare and human
service agencies. In their roles, fellows focus on high-impact reform projects to create better
and more equitable outcomes for children, families, and communities affected by child abuse,
neglect, trauma, and poverty. Each role is designed to have an immediate and lasting local
impact while also informing solutions that can be scaled nationally. Foster America fellows
receive extensive training and professional development with a cohort of peers, positioning
them to thrive and grow as social change leaders during the fellowship and beyond.
