"Project Horseshoe Farm is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with sites in Greensboro and Marion, Alabama and in Pomona, California. Our mission is to work with and build on the strengths of local communities, improve the health and quality of life of our vulnerable neighbors, and prepare citizen service leaders for tomorrow’s communities.

Horseshoe Farm partners with and brings our time tested approach to strengthening education systems, health systems, and local communities. Our approach is built around a pioneering educational grant supported “gap year” Fellowship that is mobilizing a generation of top recent college graduates from across the nation to serve as they learn to become citizen service leaders and leaders in community health.

Project Horseshoe Farm is pleased to offer a 13 month Fellowship for top graduating college students (or recent college graduates) interested in learning about community health leadership, participating in innovative approaches to improving local health and education systems, and contributing to broader strengths in local communities. Fellows consistently go on to some of the top medical, nursing, public health, health management, and education programs in the nation and several have received the most prestigious scholarships and awards at their respective institutions.
