Scenes From Our Diversity Fellowship Weekend Kick-Off

Sep 18, 2019 | Campus Happenings, The Highlights Foundation Experience

Last weekend was the onsite kick-off for our Diversity Fellowship, and special guest An Na’s opening keynote about community was the perfect way for our Mentors and Fellows to begin building their own. Below you can see some scenes from the weekend, along with a video of our Fellows talking about why they write for children.

Thanks to those of you who have donated in support of the Diversity Fellowship. We raised $1000 with our Facebook Fundraiser this week!

Visiting Our Campus

Our campus (The Barn at Boyds Mills) is tucked away in the foothills of the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.  It's a few hours from both New York City and Philadelphia, but worlds away from everyday life.
