2014 Fellowship Orientation

We all gathered together in June to welcome the new group of Fellows into the Hope Fund Community. It was a learning experience for us all. Fellows met their Supervisors, and many of us met the Summer Fellows for the first time.


Christian Sanoguel, one of the five 2014 Summer Fellows, writes that “Knowledge is what matters” during one of our ice breaker exercises. Dena Adriance (Girl Be Heard) listens in.


2014 Summer Fellow Sadasia McCutchen writes, “Compassion is what matters.” Edgar Monasterio (Legal Aid Society), Benedict Joson (Summer 2012 Fellow), and Ellen Meyers (Hope Fund) listen in.

Ellen Meyers (Hope Fund) and Benedict Joson (Summer 2012 Fellow) helped us understand Civic Engagement and Social Justice on a deeper level.
