Congratulations Brittany Winebar on Your Selection
Twenty-nine executives from youth serving organizations from across Indiana have been selected to The 2021 Executive Journey Fellowship. In response to a growing need for ongoing professional and personal renewal in the field of youth work, the Journey Fellowship was created in 2002 and funded by the Lilly Endowment Inc. A program of The Indiana Youth Service Association, The Executive Journey Fellowship provides Indiana’s youth workers greater opportunities to explore meaning and purpose in their lives and make stronger commitments to the field of youth work.
“This Fellowship is about renewing individuals, which leads to renewing organizations and ultimately, to renewing the entire field of youth work,” says Tom Plake, Journey Leader.
Each of the twenty-nine participants in the Journey Fellowship will attend a series of residential retreats designed to create new ways of thinking about and practicing youth work within existing systems and youth programs. Fellows are awarded personal renewal scholarships, and will be supported to make a difference within their local organizations and communities.
