Each year Emerald Youth Foundation selects 10 to 15 graduating high school students as Emerald Youth Fellows.

Emerald Youth’s goal for the Emerald Youth Fellows is to empower them as adult leaders. Growing and encouraging young people to be Christian leaders in their homes, their churches, and their communities is the main focus of the Emerald Youth Foundation. 

After selection, students participate in workshops, retreats, and trips and are connected with Life Coaches who serve as mentors throughout the post secondary experience, transitioning students from life as a high school teen into life as a contributing adult.
