Are you a future leader?

Can you picture yourself traveling the world?  Becoming a leader?  Making a Difference?

For over 19 years, the Elijah Cummings Youth Program (ECYP) has made an investment in promising teenagers from Congressman Cumming’s district.  With the help of counselors, teachers and principals and many others, ECYP has been able to identify outstanding high school sophomore applicants.  Every year, ECYP needs your help to identify students to be the next class of fellows.

ECYP is a free, two-year leadership fellowship for exceptional high students grounded in the historic intent of strengthening relationships between the African-American and Jewish communities.  Each year, they select 12 diverse Fellows who reach these goals through the program’s three components: 1. Twice-monthly leadership workshops, 2. A month-long cultural immersion experience in Israel, and 3. Community service and public-speaking engagements. 

If you feel you are a good candidate for this leadership opportunity, see your counselor.  Nominations will be accepted from educators, community leaders and alumni.  To find out more about the program go to      Application deadline is March 15, 2018.
