Meet our Leaders
We are developing the next generation of policy makers, organizers, elected officials, and leaders through our DemocracyCorps Fellowship, Internship programs, and Brian Sleet Memorial Fellowship. Since our start, we have developed over 200 young people–building their organizing skills and immersing them in civic processes. Our DemocracyCorps Fellowship develops young organizers from communities across Chicago to be the change they want to see. The program seeks to increase civic participation amongst young people by giving them the tools to organize their communities. Young people leading Chicago to a better future is what it’s all about!
