Do you know a community that would benefit from the Commonwealth Seminar’s curriculum in a language other than English?
The Commonwealth Seminar’s “Beyond English” Initiative offers our legislative training to everyone, in languages Beyond English!

The Leadership Next Gen Fellowship is a collaborative initiative by the Coalition for Anti-Racism and Equity (CARE) and Commonwealth Seminar. It is designed for high school and college students (referred to as fellows) hailing from underrepresented communities of color. The program aims to equip them with essential civic engagement and leadership skills, fostering community engagement and offering hands-on experience in the offices of elected officials.
