More than a program, a lifelong network...
On graduation, fellows join the alumni network of participants from all ten cohorts - supportive peers who collaborate on campaigns and projects, and provide each other with advice and friendship for many years to come.
Alumni actively participate in a Facebook group, self-organise regular catchups, and are invited to exclusive talks and events hosted by Australian Progress.
We also host an Annual Retreat open to fellows from all cohorts. The 3rd annual Alumni Retreat will be held in the Blue Mountains in May 2018.
Our fellowship alumni have titles like Chief of Staff, Campaign Director, Policy Manager, Government Relations Coordinator, Industrial Organiser, Education Manager, Consultant...and they work right across Australian Civil Society. They are a talented, passionate, hard-working and successful group, and we're very proud of them.
