The Metro Fellows is a leadership program for recent college graduates who desire to start their postgraduate life well.

 

overview

The Metro Fellows Program is designed to help young graduates learn to live integrated lives.  

The program runs September – early June and is sponsored by a consortium of  Anglican churches in the Northern Virginia/ metropolitan Washington DC area including Christ Church ViennaChurch of the Ascension and Truro Anglican Church.

Metro Fellows are equipped with the intellectual tools, spiritual habits, character development, community and network to run the race well:  to envision and plan for a career with meaning and purpose for the greater good of our workplace and culture, for Christ and His Kingdom.

Fellows live with a host family, participate in spiritual formation and biblical studies, work in a job related to their fields of interest, serve in the local church, are paired with a mentor, and build community with one another through social activities, shared meals and community service opportunities.  The program is demanding and requires discipline, commitment, self-direction and good relational skills.

The Metro Fellows Program is currently accepting applications for our class starting in September 2017.  More information on applying can be found here.
