QF Social Enterprise Fellows Kick Off the Year

QF Social Enterprise Fellows Kick Off the Year

In the classroom, around the dinner table, and on the trails of Chautauqua Park in Boulder, the 2018-19 cohort of Social Enterprise Fellows is learning about social enterprise and each other.

Fellows were asked to bring an artifact to share and to describe their leadership journey and what they bring to the Fellowship. We’re delighted to share one particularly powerful story of a Fellow’s journey from Summer Downs.

20 organizations responded to our request for proposals and are competing to host teams Fellows from January – May of 2019. Watch future issues of the newsletter for details on those selected!
