The Social Impact Fellowship combines the best elements of enrichment, service learning and internship to create an unparalleled learning experience for high school students interested in innovative solutions to important social issues.
The program brings together CMF nonprofit leadership, Yale University’s model for student-led socially responsible investment (SRI) and the Hong Kong business community to give students hands-on experience and skills development in nonprofit leadership, investment management and the field of medicine.
The intensive four-week summer program includes three weeks of interactive lectures and skills-coaching delivered by over 40 industry professionals using board rooms as classrooms and a week in China visiting CMF program sites and partner hospitals to witness the positive impact of donated funds.
Selected Fellows have a unique opportunity to acquire skills, practice leadership and interact with industry professionals providing excellent preparation for careers in finance, entrepreneurship, medicine and professions in public or private organizations.
At the end of the summer, Fellows continue to collaborate to fundraise and to monitor their Endowment Fund with professional guidance.
