Fellowship for the Common Good

The application deadline has passed.


At Allegany Franciscan Ministries, we believe in the power of individuals to make a difference in the places where they live – to drive change and foster good in ways that create healthier, safer and more connected communities. For this reason, we are launching the Fellowship for the Common Good, a 12-month resident leadership development program designed to build community capacity and sustainability through enhanced community-based leadership in all three Common Good Initiative Communities: Overtown, Wimauma, and Lincoln Park. The Fellowship for the Common Good is one part of an overall plan designed to mobilize communities towards better health and wellness through community engagement, a long-term commitment to resources and increased collaboration among residents and stakeholders.


Fellows will be expected to attend 4 quarterly learning sessions – held in different cities across the state of Florida  – and involving a half-day of travel and one and a half days of instruction.
