Eli Segal, a true citizen leader and wave maker
The Eli J. Segal Citizen Leadership Program commemorates Eli Segal's legacy, his passion for citizen engagement, and continues his commitment to developing new generations of citizen leaders.
Following an Historic Citizen Leader Path
Segal Fellows walk the same route members of the Little Rock Nine traveled to get to school during the 1954 Civil Rights Movement to integrate schools in Arkansas.
The Segal Network
78 Segal Fellows span 15 states and 3 continents combined with over 600 Founders & Friends come together as a community of leaders dedicated to helping each other succeed in advancing social justice.
Day of Action
The Segal Program partnered with the Clinton School of Public Service and the Clinton Foundation in a day of service for 2013 National Make a Difference Day led by City Year Little Rock/North Little Rock.
CEO Conversations Event
In 2015, successful company heads share how they are also citizen leaders, making a strong positive social impact and bringing together sectors as business leaders
On Friday, June 19th, 2015 Segal Fellow Rhonda Shackleford-Ulmer (2006 AmeriCorps Alums Fellow) passed away at the age of 40 after a six year battle with cancer. While we are mourning the passing of this incredible citizen leader, we are inspired by her legacy. The Segal Program recognized Rhonda's incredible achievements on the day of the 20th Anniverary of AmeriCorps in former D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray's Ceremonial Office.

The Segal Program expands each year as new cohorts of fellows are added through the Eli J. Segal Citizen Leadership Fellowship awards at Brandeis University (including undergraduate students and Heller School Master’s in Public Policy students), AmeriCorps Alums, City Year, and the Corporation for National and Community Service. Current Segal Fellows provide a guiding hand to future generations of Segal Fellows – providing an opportunity to give back by mentoring others in much the same way that Eli Segal did for so many.
