During its 10-year history, the Leland program has developed a growing network of anti-hunger leaders who share a common identity as fellows. Leland alumni are represented in both the public and private sectors, working in a variety of contexts around the globe. They serve in U.S. government agencies, community-based organizations, international NGOs, United Nations agencies, universities, and social justice ventures.
CHC continues to support Leland alumni as they implement their personal and professional anti-hunger missions. Alumni are encouraged to think of each other and CHC staff as long-term personal and professional resources in the fight against hunger and poverty. Indeed, feedback from Leland alumni continually ranks the fellowship community and its growing alumni network as one of the greatest benefits of the Leland program.
Alumni remain committed to CHC and the Leland Fellowship program, offering insight and perspective to each new class of fellows, while maintaining ties to CHC staff. Their dedication to the continued enhancement of the Leland fellowship program is evidenced by their active participation in a number of program initiatives, including:
A database and listserv ensure that contact information, career highlights, training opportunities, and job announcements are continuously shared throughout the alumni network. The CHC Alumni Bulletin serves as a cohesive document reconnecting and linking alumni within and among fellowship classes.
