Fellowship for the Common Good

OVERVIEW

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 launched 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

The application process for the 2018-2019 Fellowship for the Common Good has closed; the community members selected for Cohort II will be announced in early September. Applications for Cohort III (2019-2020) will be available in January 2019.

Fellows must live in Overtown, Wimauma or Lincoln Park; have a strong passion for, and commitment to their community; and be willing to share the ways they are stepping up to improve their community.
