The Time for Investment in Our Civic Future Has Come
The Germination Project aims to create a self-sustaining, and perpetuating ecosystem for Philadelphia’s next generation of leadership. By enlisting our region’s current leaders, the Germination Project seeks to catalyze and energize an elite cadre of ambitious young men and women, brought together by their talent, drive and commitment to putting their gifts into service for the benefit of our city.
It invites our best and brightest, regardless of circumstance, into a committed and empowered fellowship–bestowing a lifetime’s worth of opportunities in exchange for a promise by its members to pay those opportunities forward.
The Summer Leadership Boot Camp
The Summer Leadership Boot Camp, a two-week program designed by the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business and the Wharton Social Impact Initiative, aims to inspire our Fellows to maximize their individual potential and ability to contribute to Philadelphia’s growth through a two-fold approach of leadership development and social entrepreneurial skills development. Under the guidance and direction of experienced professors and guest lecturers, each Fellow will undertake a range of experiential learning opportunities designed to develop the leadership skills needed to thrive as a leader in our region.
