The program is different than I expected in that it does not end when you graduate. There is a strong Park Fellow alumni network and annual events to help Park Fellow alumni stay connected with the program.

The Park program provided a supportive environment that afforded me many opportunities to hone existing leadership skills and take risks to develop my personal leadership style.
