The Napier Initiative is more than a financial awards program. The Napier Initiative is a relational program which links students with Pilgrim Place elders whose lifetime of experience in fostering justice for all people, caring for our fragile Earth home, and nurturing peace and reconciliation has an affinity with the student's proposed project. Relationships developed over the year can be life affirming and long lasting. The Napier Initiative has established a set of expectations for a Napier Fellow.
I understand that in applying to the Napier Initiative, I am agreeing to fully embrace the mentoring experience and to participate in all aspects of the program. This includes:
Initial Meeting of Fellows and Napier Leadership:
Saturday Afternoon, October 20, 2022, 3:30 - 5:00 PM
