Give Back to Community
Editor's note: The Treu-Mart Youth Development Fellowship provides support and professional development for professionals who work with youths during non-school hours. This is the last in a series of Case Daily stories highlighting the experiences of some of the program’s participants.
The Mandel Center for Nonprofit Organizations, a nationally recognized program, serves as a resource to the development of nonprofit leadership and community development. The programs offered through the center provide a greater depth of understanding of a topic not only through substantive content grounded in the latest research, but also through application techniques and support that enable participants to apply their knowledge to make meaningful positive changes in their workplaces.
One of these signature initiatives is the Treu-Mart Youth Development Fellowship Program. Since its inception in 2004, more than 10,000 youths have benefited by the work of the fellows.
Treu-Mart Fellows are professionals who:
- See the strengths, resilience and gifts in young people
- Commit themselves to providing youths the support they need to thrive
- Work with middle-school students during out-of-school time in the Greater Cleveland area
- Seek to continually learn and develop their own skills and talents
