Applications are now being accepted for the 2017-18 Cohort of the North Star Youth Worker Fellowship


The NorthStar Youth Worker Fellowship is a cohort-based professional development experience designed to engage youth work practitioners in exploration, reflection, and study of issues facing the field of youth work in Minnesota. Over the course of 9 months, Fellows will embark on a journey that increases knowledge of the field of youth work in Minnesota and develops important leadership skills through critical thinking, interviews, study, writing and reflection in order to influence policy and practice at the individual, program and field levels.

Each fellow will identify an inquiry question and spend time figuring out how to answer that question by reviewing relevant research and writings; tapping the local wisdom of their professional network; and engaging in conversation with local and national leaders in the field. Fellows will then write an essay that attempts to answer their question. These essays will then inform systems development and field advancement in Minnesota. Inquiry topics will vary by participant but must relate to policy and practice issues relevant to the field of youth work in Minnesota.
