Hartford’s FUSE, Yale to craft fellowship model

The education affiliate of Hartford's Jumoke Academy Schools will be working with some of Yale University's MBA students to craft the organization's fellowship initiative, authorities say.

Family Urban Schools of Excellence (FUSE) announced Tuesday that Yale School of Management's Nonprofit Outreach Club accepted FUSE's invitation to refine the initiative launched last May to identify emerging leaders eager for careers in various aspects of education.

"Identifying and cultivating emerging leaders is vital to the success of education reform in the state,'' FUSE CEO Michael Sharpe said in a statement. "With the assistance of the Yale SOM Outreach Club, we will establish a vibrant pipeline to fill this critical need."

The Outreach Nonprofit Consulting club is a student-run initiative that matches teams of first- and second-year MBA students with nonprofits to complete a pro bono management consulting project.

Three Outreach Club members will meet with the FUSE team in the coming weeks and develop a project plan, officials said.

Opened in 1997, Jumoke Academy Schools aim to improve academic outcomes for students from diverse backgrounds.

FUSE was launched in May 2012 to replicate the Jumoke Academy model.
