About the Program

The Fellows Program is a nine month program beginning with a two day retreat. Then, once a month, an all-day session will address a particular subject such as education, government, healthcare and quality of life. For example, a seminar focusing on criminal justice might include a ride-along with a police officer on patrol, a visit to Drug Court, a meeting with the judge in his chambers, a tour of correctional facilities and an opportunity to talk with the Director of Public Safety and members of the Paroling Authority. Program Fellows will help plan the sessions, bringing in community leaders to talk about the challenges they face.


The Pacific Century Fellows Program does not end with graduation. Rather, it is the beginning of greater community responsibility. Fellows Program graduates are encouraged to take a more active public service role, applying the concepts learned over the course of the program. For example, Fellows are encouraged to participate as mentors for ninth graders in the Junior Pacific Century Fellows Program.
