Kickstart Communities Fellowships support West Virginians to gain the skills needed to find their voices as leaders and step up to make positive change in their communities.

Applications for the Champions for Change Fellowship will open the day of the info session (June 18th). This program will be a combination of in-person and virtual sessions over the course of 10 weeks beginning in late August. Join us at this virtual event to learn more.

In the Champions for Change Fellowship, participants learn how to build community teams, lead effective meetings, create and facilitate events, resolve conflict, tackle projects, and build positive relationships both with internal teams and external partners.
