Why become a Community Fellow?

The Community Fellowship could be right for you if you are interested in developing:

  • Your leadership potential;
  • Skills in one of 4 tracks: advocacy, training & events, project coordination, or technology;
  • And creating a community project of your choosing.

Our coaching & mentoring will support your personal and skills development as well as provide meaningful networking opportunities.
