An Alumni Fellowship Program was a part of the plans for LightHouse from our earliest days. With the support of The Davis Family Foundation in 2021, we were able to make that plan a reality. We are thrilled to partner Americorps to support the growth and leadership development of our Fellows.
Our Alumni Fellowship Program has two goals: to provide current students with additional support and guidance from a recent graduate, and to support the continuing development of leadership and life skills for alumni. Fellows are LightHouse alumni who mentor and teach current students. They support community building, assist conflict resolution, model accountability, offer socioemotional support, and guide and support student leaders at LightHouse. Fellows are also asked to work on various LightHouse projects potentially including event planning and/or program development.

"Before LightHouse I didn’t find any joy in going to school. I didn’t want to wake up in the morning to go to school and just sit at a desk. I lost all of my motivation and my grades fell. Then I started LightHouse. It was a big change in my life, and I wish I knew about it a lot sooner."
