Announcing: #10DaysofChange! Meet the 2015 Change Fellows.
Bianca Dawkins, a Youthprise Change Fellow, introduces our 2015 Change Fellows! Change Fellows is an initiative that was designed as a part of our strategic goal, Innovation in Youth Engagement. This initiative expands our deep investment in young people and reflects our commitment to finding and investing in initiatives that accelerate learning beyond the classroom. Bianca shares details about the program, and highlights the 10 Fellows who have been selected to advance their BIG ideas for stirring up change in their communities. Selections were made by a group of young people, Youthprise staff and community members. The fellowship is a one-year program that offers financial support, professional development and the opportunity for further financial investments from Youthprise toward the implementation of their big idea at the end of the year.
10 Days of Change is an opportunity for us to share the videos that the Change Fellows submitted so you can get to know them, their communities, and learn about their big ideas. We will be kicking off the 10 Days of Change on Monday, April 20th on our Facebook page. Every day you will have to opportunity to get to know each of the Fellows. We are thrilled to share this initiative with you, and to inspire you with the BIG ideas of young Minnesotans!
