Dream Experience

The Dream Experience is a week-long fellowship for the next generation of leaders that will take place in our dream house in Los Angeles. Selected applicants from across the United States will participate in leadership development, entrepreneurship, and civic engagement activities. This year, we will introduce a technology component to explore what it means to be a leader in the digital age. The fun begins with a trip to the BET Experience and surprise guests who will stop by to share their success stories. You will also connect with like-minded peers who, by the end of the week, you will have shared a special bond.

We are seeking fellows committed to their personal, professional, and educational journeys and need some assistance. If any of the above sounds interesting, we encourage you to apply!

If you are selected, you will be flown to Los Angeles, California, free of charge, to collaborate with peers representing various cities across the country.
