Newman's Own Foundation Announces New Class of Fellows

Newman's Own Foundation welcomes a new class of Fellows, as it enters the fourth year of its Fellowship Program. There will be 14 new Fellows starting the program, as 17 Fellows graduate today.

The Newman's Own Foundation Fellowship Program provides a work experience in the nonprofit sector for new college graduates, along with professional development training and coaching to help them shape their professional paths. Each Fellow is paired with a nonprofit, matching their skills and interests with the needs of the organization. Throughout the year, the Fellows get together for meetings, workshops, networking, and other support programs organized by Newman's Own Foundation to help enrich their experiences and prepare them for the future.

"Our Fellowship Program provides a special opportunity for young people who are at the threshold of their careers to experience the world of philanthropy and social purpose," said Bob Forrester, President and CEO of Newman's Own Foundation and Co-Chairman of Newman's Own, Inc. "By providing our Fellows the opportunity to work inside a nonprofit organization, our hope is that they will gain meaningful insights and appreciation of the vital role this sector plays in making our world a better place. It's an experience they will carry with them and put to good use regardless of their ultimate career paths."

There are 40 alumni in the Fellowship Program. Many of the graduates have stayed in the nonprofit sector, applying their skills where they can help others and contribute to the common good. They attributed their career direction to the experience of the Fellowship Program.
