James H. Gilliam, Sr. Fellowship
Cultivating Exceptional Leaders Ready to Serve in All Communities
The James H. Gilliam, Sr. Fellowship is a program where diverse leadership converges to work collaboratively in communities while building their capacity as policymakers, advocates, and community organizers.
During this 10-month immersive fellowship, our Fellows gain knowledge and experience in policy research and coalition building and learn to navigate Delaware’s political and economic arenas from a host of legislators, community advocates, and business leaders across the state.
