The Class of 2019 First-Year Fellows arrived in Washington, DC this week to begin the summer internship portion of the program. During their first week in the nation's capitol, they continue Civic Skills Training (CST), which is designed to provide the First-Year Fellows with the skills necessary to excel in their placement internships and beyond. 

The CST curriculum covers everything from team work, collaboration, public speaking, networking, advocacy writing, project management, and professionalism. The sessions build cumulatively in order to provide a comprehensive and coherent picture of the public and nonprofit sectors, as well as individual management and leadership development.
