Students from California campuses were selected in Fall 2022 to participate in LEAD California’s Community Engagement Student Fellowship-Youth Voice, Youth Vote (YVYV) program, a 4-month initiative specifically designed to support student leaders advancing service, service-learning and community engagement at LEAD California member campuses throughout the state, focusing on voter engagement and youth voice.

Upon successfully completing a term of service of at least 35-50 hours, students receive a $500 scholarship from LEAD California. Students are engaged in providing direct service to the community or supporting a service-learning program, or both. Students are involved in addressing every major issue confronting California and beyond – from access to and success in higher education to economic development, health disparities to homelessness and poverty.

For more information, contact Piper McGinley, LEAD California’s Associate Director.


We are no longer accepting applications for the September 2022 cohort of CESF Student Fellows.
