The Anchor Fellows Program adds a dimension to existing training of future higher education and other anchor leaders by preparing a next generation committed to AITF’s values to successfully navigate the engagement of anchors in their local communities.  This training also highlights the competencies required to build and maintain the commitment and infrastructure to sustain a comprehensive commitment to democratic local engagement. Thanks to the Teagle Foundation for supporting this effort. 

We will open the application process for the next cohort in early 2020.
