ABOUT THE FELLOWSHIP
Unspoken Smiles Fellowship is an empowerment program tailored for young women in their early 20s to late 30s, to play a critical/key/vital role in oral disease prevention in their communities, use their skills learned and resources to advocate for and advance the Unspoken Smiles Foundation’s mission, while also honing their personal, professional, and leadership goals.
As the Fellowship program grows, these young women will not just impact their individual families and communities, but their countries as well. Programs like this are the future of sustainable humanitarian efforts, arming developing countries with the proper training and guidance to take development into their own hands.
Applications for the Unspoken Smiles Fellowship are now open until December 1st, 2019.
The inaugural class of Unspoken Smiles Fellows will be selected each year in our current target location in New York City. If you’re interested in the NYC Fellowship program, we invite you to apply TODAY.
