While all projects are unique, Fellows’ service will follow the steps below:

  • Gap Assessments: Fellows identify project needs and set the scope of their service.
  • Service Projects: Fellows conduct research, planning, or implementation projects to address community needs.
  • Volunteer Engagement: Fellows mobilize volunteers to take action in their communities. 
  • Knowledge Sharing: Fellows sustain progress by training staff or sharing outcomes with local partners.
