Now in its third decade, the Casey Fellows program is an intensive executive leadership program designed to give child and family-serving professionals the confidence to successfully lead major system reforms and community change initiatives. Hailing from thirteen different states, the eight women and eight men — all accomplished leaders from the public, nonprofit, and academic sectors working in fields such as juvenile justice, child welfare, education, housing, and health — will use the sixteen-month fellowship to work within their agencies, organizations, and communities toward specific, measurable outcomes for children and families.
"This new class of Casey Fellows is poised to have a profound influence on how children and families fare in this country," said Casey Foundation president and CEO Patrick McCarthy. "The fellowship gives them the tools to achieve large-scale results and a powerful network to expand their reach."
