INML Community Fellows Program

Mission Statement

The mission of the Institute for Nonprofit Management and Leadership is to educate, support, and connect the next generation of nonprofit leaders. The mission of the Community Fellows Program is to build a strong and talented cohort of young urban leaders, able to initiate social and organizational change in Boston, leading to greater diversity, social justice, community cohesion, and inter-community collaboration.

Build. Connect. Collaborate. Lead.

Build the leadership pipeline. Connect the generations. Collaborate with one another. Lead together.

Tomorrow’s nonprofit leaders are currently young, diverse, and committed to social justice. They will draw on the lessons and insights of pioneer community leaders to forge new connections and powerful impact.

The Institute for Nonprofit Management and Leadership has built the Community Fellows Program in order to nurture these future leaders at both an organizational and community-wide level.

The Community Fellows Program is a one-year, part time certificate program. Participants will be trained in the art of nonprofit management as well as the history and impact of social justice and community collaboration in Boston.
