Social Impact Fellowship

Prepares high school students to be socially responsible leaders with the skills and understanding needed to lead impactful personal and professional lives.

Initiated in 2018 as a four-week intensive summer program, Fellowship combines the best elements of enrichment, service learning, and internship to create an unparalleled learning experience for high school students interested in innovative solutions to important social issues. 

The program brings together CMF nonprofit leadership, Yale University Dwight Hall’s model for student-led socially responsible investment (SRI), and the Hong Kong business community to give students hands-on experience and skills development in nonprofit leadership, investment management, and the field of medicine.

“We stepped into the real world, wore formal suits and gained the practical knowledge of nonprofits, finance, leadership and medicine. I’m so grateful that I could embark on this sophisticated and charitable journey with CMF.”

Yale University Collaboration

In 2018 CMF launch its first social enterprise the Social Impact Fellowship, a collaboration between CMF, Yale University’s Dwight Hall Socially Responsible Investment Fund (DHSRI) and the Hong Kong business community to create a unique program.

DHSRI is the first undergraduate-run fund to make sure of socially responsible investment (SRI) methods to create positive environmental and social impact while aiming to outperform standard investment benchmarks. The DHSRI Fund inspires the creation of student-led funds at universities making socially responsible investing both accessible and exciting.

Daniel Shen, former Yale Committee Advisor on Investor Responsibility and DHSRI Fund chairman, has been a key driver in the Social Impact Fellowship Committee since our first program in 2018.

“As a parent, I’m happy to see that my child is more confident with her abilities and move comfortable doing things out of er comfort zone. After her experience, she has been inspired to dream bigger and set new goals for the future. She has learnt many things that she would’ve never learnt if not for this program.”
