Foundation selects fellows for nonprofit leadership program

The John T. Gorman Foundation announced the second class of its fellowship, a leadership program for exceptional nonprofit and public sector professionals.

The John T. Gorman Fellowship aims to help participants become more focused on results and build the vision, confidence and competence required to advance change and improve the lives of vulnerable people in Maine.

The 12 fellows come from across the state and have diverse interests, experiences and skills. Each member works on issues related to the foundation's mission and investment priorities, which include improving educational achievement for young children, promoting successful transitions to adulthood for vulnerable older youth, helping struggling parents to support their families and enabling more low-income seniors to remain in their homes as long as possible.

"By investing in these extraordinary leaders, we expect to reap significant returns for the participants and the organizations they represent and, most importantly, affect long-term change for our state's most vulnerable people."
