Investing in the next generation of leaders

For S. Truett Cathy, Chick-fil-A’s founder, serving customers and serving the community were equally important — and he was particularly passionate about preparing young people to become the next generation of civic and business leaders with a servant’s heart. 

The Chick-fil-A Fellows program is built upon that goal. Approximately 30 college students from around the country — including the True Inspiration Scholarship recipients — are invited each year to become Fellows. They are leaders both inside and outside of school, and, they have a desire to make a difference. 

During the 10-month program, Fellows attend a kick-off event in Atlanta, participate in monthly video curriculum on leadership development, attend four quarterly digital meet-ups with the entire Fellows class, and engage regularly with their Chick-fil-A staff mentor. By the end of the program the Fellows are equipped to think about leadership in a whole new way. And, have the skills they need to lead themselves and impact people in their communities and beyond.
