Meet the 2011 Fellows
Our inaugural group of Fellows were not only pioneers in their fields, but pioneered our first cohort of Fellows. And they knocked our socks off. New funding, national media attention and even our first national political candidate – these innovators continue to wow us daily with their passion, ideas, and ability to change the world.
In just the first six months of our pilot year, six programs were replicated community to community, more than $500,000 in new funds were raised as participants shared program proposals and made introductions for each other, and leadership development enabled some participants to ask for help and others to show more strength.
