Lifted Voices Fellowship
The Black Child Development Institute (BCDI)-Atlanta Lifted Voices Fellowship is designed to establish a lifelong practice of inclusive leadership and commitment to social justice in professions serving young children.

This includes deepening knowledge of the barriers, resources, new approaches to policy, diverse points of view, and fresh perspectives on increasing equity and access to high-quality programs.
Fellows will take a deep dive into content covering the development and implementation of policies that support early education and the overall health and well-being of Black children ages 0-8 and their families. Learn more here and apply.
