Home/Our Work/ZERO TO THREE Fellowship/Fellowship Class of 2022-2024

Fellowship Class of 2022-2024

We're proud to introduce our newest ZERO TO THREE Fellows!

Our intensive program empowers early childhood leaders to transform programs, systems, and policies — all to ensure babies have a strong start in life.

Selected from our largest applicant pool of record, the 2022-24 Fellows are a vibrant and diverse cohort of international leaders committed to advancing fair, equitable, and just change on behalf of babies and their families. With expertise spanning infant and early childhood mental health (IECMH) clinical services, program administration, research, and early childhood policy, these courageous and compassionate leaders serve urban, rural, and indigenous communities across the United States, Australia, Pakistan, and Myanmar. 

A legacy program of ZERO TO THREE with more than 300 national and international alumni since its founding, the fellowship strives to create a global network of transformative leaders committed to making the world a better place for infants and toddlers. We are excited to begin the deeply relational and collaborative journey of professional and personal growth with this cohort. Together, we are committed to advancing innovative, sustainable change.
