Community Leadership Fellowship Program Applications Due Friday

We posted earlier about an exciting fellowship program from the W.F. Kellogg Foundation aimed at developing community leaders into social change agents, and we wanted to share a reminder that the deadline to apply is this Friday. We would love to see a number of NCDD members become fellows, so make sure to turn in your applications soon! You can read more about the program below in the Philanthropy Digest News article we found via our friends at NIFI, or see the original post here.

kellogg logoThe W.K. Kellogg Foundation is accepting applications for the WKKF Community Leadership Fellowship Program. Through the program, the foundation hopes to create a cadre of community and civic leaders who are able to serve as vigorous advocates for vulnerable children and their families and bring diverse communities together.

Over a three-year period, fellows will engage in shared learning experiences designed to help transform them into effective agents of social change. Each fellowship year has a unique theme and intended purpose. The theme of the first year is Building the Beloved Community for Transformative Change, with a focus on the role of the individual in the community. The second year’s theme will be Forging Intentional Networks for Community Impact, with a focus on knowledge and tools for leadership and change. And the theme of the third year will be Energizing the Nation: Moving Forward for Children.

Fellows will receive an annual stipend of $20,000 to cover travel and accommodation expenses related to quarterly cohort meetings, leadership network projects, and as partial salary support.

Ideal candidates are emerging or established leaders who grasp the importance of working and engaging with others to explore solutions and solve conflicts; empathize and connect to others through voice, action or presence; and respond to new opportunities and relationships in the service of social change.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, including an FAQ and program brochure, visit the WKKF Web site.
