WHAT PROBLEM ARE WE SOLVING?

Each year we select a talented cohort of diverse teens from underserved communities as Nyah ProjectFellows. 

Our international experiential fellowship features cultural and service learning opportunities in amazing destinations, including Ghana, Costa Rica, South Africa, and Namibia- at no cost to them. To date, 100% of our Fellows are accepted in college/university and 90% win scholarships.

Nyah Fellows are exposed to prominent leaders from the civic, business and professional community, both locally and abroad.  They receive intensive training in human factor leadership and social entrepreneurship.
