MetroMorphosis believes that fellowships are one of the most effective tools for implementing change in urban communities through capacity building and effective leadership training.
This year, MetroMorphosis will select a cohort dedicated to addressing challenges in the northern sector of our city.
Fellows will engage in shared learning experiences and will become strong agents of change that will last beyond the program’s duration. Through ULDI, MetroMorphosis seeks to provide the following skill set:
• Assessing need and opportunity
• Innovative problem-solving
• Communicating vision
• Building coalitions
• Developing working teams
• Overcoming challenges
• Community engagement
Selected participants will work to collectively identify and solve persistent challenges facing North Baton Rouge.
Participants will be chosen by the ULDI selection committee based upon the information completed in this application. The committee will be seeking representation from a cross-section of the community who have an interest or desire to make a substantial impact on urban communities based on the skill set previously mentioned. These leaders and potential leaders will be active in business, education, the arts, religion, government, law,media, labor, community-based organizations, ethnic and/or minority groups, and will reflect the diversity of the community.
