Our 2020 Dragon Kim Fellowship cohort includes 51 students between San Francisco and San Diego!  We’re launching state-wide initiatives to better the community through the hearts and passions of our Dragon Fellows.  Click the project titles below to learn more about these innovative world changers.


In March 2020, our cohort experienced our first-ever Online Leadership Training!  We had over 60 students, staff, and guests on our Zoom call to learn about developing and pitching your project vision.  The cohort also got the chance to name their team, “The United Visionaries.”  This summer, they are committing to love, perseverance, and empowerment.  We’re so proud of our Dragons! #beadragon
