What are the desired outcomes of the program?

Does the program serve a specific population?

Yes : Fellows participating in EPFP work full-time in the broad array of organizations, agencies and institutions--at all levels and in all sectors--whose work focuses on the issues that have an impact on the education and well-being of children and youth. Employing (or sponsoring) organizations are expected to provide the financial support and the release time necessary for particpation in all program activities. IEL invites individuals to apply for EPFP who have a commitment to personal and professional development on behalf of children and youth, substantive work experiences, a bachelor's degree or its equivalent, a full-time professional position, and the endorsement and financial support of their employing organizations. EPFP requires participation in on-site training activities which are generally, but not always, held at the conclusion of the normal work day--in addition to the two national conferences. Before applying, interested individuals should consider these extra demands on their time in light of their current professional and personal schedules.
