Hilliard P. Jenkins
The HPJ Fellowship is a fully funded ten-week summer residency for emerging leaders.
Frontline Solutions designed the Hilliard P. Jenkins Fellowship in 2010 for emerging leaders interested in the intersection of social justice, entrepreneurship, and consulting in the nonprofit sector. The program is structured as a 10-week paid fellowship with supplemental professional development opportunities. HPJ Fellows are placed at one Frontline’s offices, and receive introductions to organizations in their base city and around the country, while working on a variety of high-impact projects.
HPJ Fellows develop their skills through participation in internal projects that expose them to the inner workings and strategy development of a consulting firm and external projects that support the work of Frontline’s clients. Past Fellows have worked with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Solutions Project, NAACP, Color of Change, and Drexel University, among others. The HPJ Fellowship also has a strong professional development component to support fellows as young social change leaders.
Frontline looks for undergraduate and graduate students, community organizers, artists, entrepreneurs, and non-profit professionals to build a diverse cohort. We strongly encourage people of color, of diverse gender identities, people with differing abilities, women, and LGBTQ persons to apply.
