Elizabeth Edwards Fellows Program

The Elizabeth Edwards Fellows Program is a comprehensive effort to provide promising students from Broughton High School with resources, support, and tools they need to succeed.  The program’s curriculum reflects the passions of Elizabeth Edwards, enhancing the Fellows’ lives through mentorship, advocacy, and public service.  The goal of the Fellows Program is to support and develop the students’ academic strengths, to encourage and develop qualities to make them successful students in further study, and to provide support and enrichment so that the students can contribute to the community in positive ways.

The foundation is currently seeking dedicated individuals to serve as volunteer Elizabeth Mentors for the fellowship program during the 2016-17 school year.  

Each mentor will be paired with one high school student and will meet 3-4 hours per month. During these sessions, mentors and students will do a variety of things, such as participate in fun activities, address academic and personal issues that the student faces, and discuss the student’s goals and path to college.  The days and times of the meetings are flexible and based on the mentor and fellow’s availability.

Share your wisdom and expertise with a student and help make a difference in a young person’s life! Apply today.
