Fellow Testimonials

At Enroot, I work closely with immigrant students, build community among them, and support them in their endeavors. I facilitate relationships between them and their mentors, so they can develop their sense of self and of belonging. I see the impact of our work when my students say that they can rely on me, other Enroot staff, or their mentor for support. I love being able to see our students grow their confidence, develop their ability to advocate for themselves, and foster tightknit relationships with each other. 

Kal, Fellow at Enroot from 2022-2023

When I first started MPF I was a little intimidated. I was unsure about the other fellows and felt I had a long way to go in order to catch up with all the materials. However, I found the exact opposite and realized that MPF is intentional about supporting fellows with the trainings necessary for success at their host site. I have found success at my host site, St. Stephen’s Youth Programs, through scheduling college tours for my seniors, hosting senior retreats, and creating opportunities for my youth to advocate for themselves at my organization. MPF built the starting foundation for my career path and I look forward to doing my second year at St. Stephen’s Youth Programs.

I joined MPF right after graduating college without fully understanding the impact it would have on my life. Although I majored in marine science in college with a heavy focus on research, I wanted to find an experience that would enable me to work with kids. Through MPF and my host site placement at Apprentice Learning, I have not only enhanced my ability to facilitate youth programs, but also project management skills, social media content creation, and building relationships with external partners.
