Org Leader Fellowship
Our region is launching an Org Leader Fellowship this year! After meeting with constituents, collecting data, and reflecting on historical information, we see that there is a need for our alumni to be developed in Brand, Access, and Skill. We want to "build the bench" for senior leadership roles in our community, create access, and act as a funnel for strong and diverse talent to our exist organization. This program will help enable our Alumni to be a part of that "bench" in Chicago-NWI. Interested in learning more about this Fellowship? Email Angela Baker to find out more!
Starbucks Opportunity Youth
We are partnering with Starbucks to pilot a mentorship program for Starbucks Opportunity Youth employees or “partners”. We’re recruiting 25 alumni to serve as mentors over the course of July through December. More details can be found in this overview and this FAQs document. If you are interested in becoming a Starbucks partner mentor, please complete the application by Wednesday, June 27. If you have questions, reach out to Siobhan Hunter.
