In 2017, the ABCD Institute created a new fellowship program. The purpose of the fellowship is to train and support a new generation of practitioners in order to sustain ABCD into the future. The faculty selected 23 fellows from across the U.S. and Canada, based on their leadership in their own communities and their dedication to ABCD principles. Throughout the year, fellows will work closely with an ABCD faculty mentor to study and learn about asset based community development in theory and practice. Fellows will also develop a project related to their own work and interests.
The fellows met for the first time in June, 2017. The following video shares some of their voices and perspectives.
Together, the ABCD fellows bring a wealth of experience, passion and expertise. Check out their individual bios below!
