Each year our Fellows program brings together individuals from across the community. They meet once a month and by the end of the year, they graduate filled with the understanding of what makes Lincoln tick and a sincere desire to get engaged through their service on a board, as a volunteer and/or reaching out as an individual to help those around them.

Those who participate in the Fellows program have demonstrated an interest in and a potential for leadership, they’re motivated, they have a broad range of interests and they’re willing to commit the time and energy to participate in the program and to become an engaged alum of Leadership Lincoln.

The Fellows program schedule includes an opening retreat in September, monthly seminars covering such topics as government, education, business, health, and human services. The participants also work in teams to select and complete a community service project.
