What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Fellowship program

Foster America recruits talented and diverse professionals from other sectors who have the skills needed to address persistent problems in the child welfare system in new ways: skills in data and technology, design and marketing, strategy and planning, and finance. We equip these professionals with the training they need to serve as full-time fellows at public child welfare and related agencies across the country, where they lead major reform projects that require their skills. In the long term, we aim to scale the innovations our fellows develop and build a movement of fellowship alumni who will assume higher leadership responsibilities in our field and transform child welfare outcomes nationwide.
