11th Annual National Fellows Conference

About the Conference

Each year, the community of fellows programs gather together in the Washington DC area for the TFI National Fellows Conference. Occurring near the end of the program year, this conference is a time for fellows to see old friends, reflect on all that has been learned, and prepare for life after the program. Most fellows programs use this time to tour the Capitol Region, visit elected representatives, and learn about some of the global companies and nonprofits in this area. PLEASE JOIN US!​
