  • 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

We grow by nearly 10 Segal Fellows every year. Help us support these leaders


Segal Fellow Shawn Rubin (2009 Eli Segal Entrepreneurial AmeriCorps Alums Fellow) has been nominated for an award called the Lawrence O'Toole Award from the New England's Nellie Mae Education Foundation for the work he's been doing to support teachers, principals and district leaders to rethink how we educate students. Nellie Mae has nominated one person from each state in New England to participate in a voting contest. If he wins he will get $100,000 for his organization to continue to build upon this work!

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.
