92Y's Ford Fellowship team is working with a variety of local and international organizations to offer Fellows a series of exclusive opportunities and programs as part of the 2018 Fellowship program.  More details and the full program agenda will be shared shortly.

The Fellowship is free to accepted participants.  Accommodation, meals, transportation, and a small stipend will be provided.  The program will take place from March 5 - 9, 2018 in São Paulo, Brazil (Fellows will need to arrive by March 4).

Fellows will complete the following types of activities:

  • Strategic meetings with entrepreneurs and leaders, including executives from 92Y and Ford Motor Company Fund

  • Interactive workshops and discussions with experts on:

    • Social media on how to use new technologies to share and inspire greater knowledge-sharing

    • Program development and management

    • Fundraising and civic engagement strategies

    • Storytelling and marketing tips

    • Movement building, with a focus on #DiaDeDoar and #GivingTuesday as a case study

    • Engaging millennials and the next generation of activists

  • Cultural activities to experience and learn about São Paulo

  • Special visit to Ford Motor Company Offices and São Bernardo Assembly Plant

  • Networking and collaboration sessions with other Fellows


Upon completing the program, Fellows will apply what they learn and commit to doing a social impact project in the months following the Fellowship. The Fellows will be encouraged to work in small teams on a shared initiative or campaign for #DiaDeDoar.
