Eighteen Echoing Green Fellows were recognized on Forbes' 2015 "30 under 30" list for their innovative work on tackling the world's biggest problems.
As part of our commitment to deepening support to Fellows, we travel around the world to gain a better understanding of the environment in which these social innovators operate.
Over the past twenty-five years, we have seen our Fellows inspire, mentor and partner with one another building upon the impact of Fellows that have come before them. This new class of 2013 Echoing Green and Black Male Achievement Fellows is no exception.
