The entire Columbus Foundation has been on a high today as we welcomed the 2010 class of summer Fellows! This is a group of some of the best and brightest college students who are being partnered with nonprofits in the community. The Columbus Foundation Summer Fellowship Program has been over a year in planning to insure the best experience for the fellows, the Foundation, and the nonprofits. The opportunity for The Columbus Foundation to nurture next generation nonprofit leadership is a priority for us and we think this class is a prime example of the kind of potential leaders that are in the community and need to be highlighted.
The opportunity for the Fellows to share their experiences through this blog will provide real-time information and feedback to be shared. As this is our pilot year, their observations will help the nonprofits and the Foundation refine the experience for the next class. It will also provide the community with insight into the innovation and thoughtful observations of this generation of potential leaders. We are looking forward with excitement to being given access to their experiences, reactions, and reflection here!
