Fellows who serve in the US-2 Track have witnessed the deep-rooted systems of injustice in their own country and desire to advocate for change. Fellows form meaningful relationships within the community as they are mentored by program experts in partnering organizations.
Since 1951, the US-2 Track has sent young adults to cross boundaries and form meaningful relationships to better understand the needs of local communities. The program’s placement sites offer direct work experience and job training for fellows while meeting immediate needs in the placement context.
Fellows leave their home state during service, giving them the opportunity to see a new community with a fresh perspective while learning about systems preventing change.
