EPFP is a job-embedded experience. Fellows work full-time in a 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. These employers act as state sponsors for select employees.
Each year, EPFP coordinators work with sponsors to recruit Fellows for the state site programs. Each Fellow's sponsor pays the program fee plus travel costs associated with the national meeting and provides the release time necessary for participation in all program activities.
See if your employer is a current EPFP state sponsor. If you do not see your employer listed, check with the EPFP coordinator for your state for tips on how to approach your employer about becoming a sponsor.
If your organization would like to become a state sponsor, contact the EPFP coordinator for your state site to get more information about becoming a sponsor. Groups and individuals interested in supporting the national program can donate online or contact Shaina Cook, National EPFP Program Coordinator.
