Author: Andy Kostielney

Velshonna Luckey has been awarded a 2016 Executive Journey Fellowship.

She is one of 29 youth workers statewide receiving the fellowship, which has been annually awarded since 2002. Funded by the Lilly Endowment Inc., the fellowship provides Indiana’s youth workers greater opportunities to bring more meaning to their lives and make stronger commitments to the field. The fellows attend a series of residential retreats designed to create new ways of thinking about and practicing youth work within existing systems and youth programs, are awarded individual renewal scholarships, and are supported to make a difference within their local organizations or communities.
