The Leadership 2030 Program

Leadership 2030 is an intensive two-year fellowship program in which various cohorts of young Hellenes will have an opportunity to dramatically improve both their knowledge and skills base, be given mentorship opportunities that will further both their professional development and civic engagement, and will be given multiple opportunities to begin leading now.

Leadership 2030 fellows must be age 30 or younger at time of selection and have completed an undergraduate degree. 

Leadership 2030 Fellows participate in a 12-course leadership curriculum over two years,  attend annual advocacy trips to Washington D.C., and consistently participate in HALC’s communication strategy through publishable blog posts and social media postings.

In addition to the program above, Leadership 2030 Fellows will be given the following:

  • Each Fellow will be assigned a personal mentor from HALC’s core membership.

  • Fellows will be grouped by profession and assigned to an emeritus mentor, a Hellene over 60 who is both accomplished professionally and civically active.

  • The access and benefits of a HALC Diamond Membership.

  • Special networking and educational opportunities.


Leadership 2030 NY & NJ

At its midway point, our first Leadership 2030 class has already surpassed all expectations. We are now looking to building on that success and expand the program to incorporate young talented Hellenes in New York City and New Jersey.

We will accept applications through end of January 2019, decisions will go out in February, and the program will kick off in March.

If you are interested in applying to the program, please email Director of Public Affairs Thanos Davelis for more information at
