New Kellogg Community Leadership Fellowship

kellogg logoWe are excited to share the new Community Leadership Network fellowship from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation with the many community leaders we have in our NCDD network.  The first class of fellowships will be drawn from Michigan, New Mexico, Mississippi, and New Orleans, so we strongly encourage NCDD members from these states to consider applying for this great opportunity.

You can find much more information in Kellogg’s press release about the new program, but here is a snippet describing the elements of the Community Leadership Network initiative:

The new initiative seeks to develop the leadership skills of individuals who will be community-based social change agents working to help vulnerable children and their families achieve optimal health and well-being, access to good food, academic achievement and financial security.

The new fellowship program is a critical component of the foundation’s longstanding commitment to community and civic engagement, which is grounded in the belief that people have the inherent capacity to solve their own problems and that social transformation is within the reach of all communities. A total of 100 fellows will be equitably selected from the foundation’s U.S. priority places – Michigan, Mississippi, New Mexico and New Orleans – and will do their work there. Another 20 fellows will be selected from outside these priority places and will function as a national cohort whose work will focus on racial healing and equity, which sets it apart from most other leadership initiatives. The foundation will seek out emerging as well as established leaders for selection to the program.

If you are interested learning more about this opportunity, then head on over to www.wkkf.org/leadership for more details, and check out the online application here. The deadline to apply to be a part of the Community Leadership Network is January 10th, 2014, so don’t wait too long to get started.

Best of luck to the applicants, and we look forward to seeing the great work that comes out of this initiative!
