We Are All Brooklyn Fellowship Gears Up for Its Fifth Year

The We Are All Brooklyn (WAAB) Fellowship is currently accepting applications for a 10-month leadership development program, which are due by Monday, July 18, 2011. Now entering its fifth year, the WAAB Fellowship is dedicated to advancing the next generation of Brooklyn’s young diverse leaders.

The WAAB Fellowship teaches and challenges participants to work together. Fellows will learn how they can help communities share resources, manage dynamic tensions, and collaborate on solving problems. Ultimately, Fellows will be able to utilize diversity as an asset to themselves, their agencies, their community, and Brooklyn.

Fellows will participate in monthly professional development seminars and action committee meetings from September 2011 through June 2012. Eligible applicants include promising young leaders currently working for community, faith-based, government, and non-profit organizations serving Brooklyn.

The WAAB Fellowship is a project of We Are All Brooklyn (WAAB), a coalition of more than 75 community and faith-based organizations in Brooklyn and born in the aftermath of 9/11. WAAB brings leaders from diverse cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds together to solve quality of life issues affecting their communities.

The WAAB Fellowship is generously funded by the Brooklyn Community Foundation. The program receives technical assistance from the CAUSE-NY, the Intergroup Relations division of the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, and is a partnership with CAMBA and the Council of People’s Organizations (COPO).
