    87 Segal Fellows span 17 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.

    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.

Our Network

The Segal Citizen Leadership Program expands each year, as new cohorts of Fellows are added in partnership with Brandeis University (including undergraduates and Heller School Master’s in Public Policy students), AmeriCorps Alums/Service Year Alliance, City Year, and the Corporation for National and Community Service. Our 117 Segal Fellows and 600 Founders and partners provide a guiding hand to our Fellows as they continue to grow and have an impact as emerging citizen leaders.  This intergenerational Segal Network provides an opportunity to give back by mentoring others in much the same way that Eli Segal did and Phyllis Segal does for so many.
