Not just 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, get together in ad-hoc settings, are invited to exclusive talks and events hosted by Australian Progress, and most excitingly attend annual summer retreat open to fellows from all cohorts.
Starting with the 2017 Melbourne cohort, fellows will have the option to commit to the Alumni network when they are accepted into the fellowship, guaranteeing them a place at either the 2018 or 2019 Alumni retreat.
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.
