Community Impact Fellowship Application
CMC is creating a year-long Fellowship cohort to support Inland Empire non-profit organizations to go beyond measuring their reach, and actually start measuring the changes they are making in their communities. Often, non-profits provide services and define their impact by how many people they've reached. But if they are truly having an impact, the number of people reached does not necessarily reflect how they are improving people's lives. This Fellowship opportunity will provide support to select non-profits at the executive and support levels to track how they are improving communities and frame a new impact narrative. This 2-pronged approach will build capacity of the select organizations in the following ways:

- Executive level - CMC will work with executive leadership (1 member) to establish their unique expertise and to uplift their voices as thought-leaders in their respective sectors in the Inland Empire, regionally and nationwide.

- Support level - CMC students with faculty support will engage with the programs arm (2 members) of the organization to review and analyze how they measure their program impact and help develop a more robust tracking mechanism.

Fellow representatives are expected to:

- Participate in 3-5 skills-building workshops at CMC (e.g. Theory of Change, Building a Logic Model, Impact Tracking, Design Thinking, Bias Training etc,)
- Engage with students to review and audit the organization’s impact tracking
- Work with students to create a robust impact tracking mechanism
- Meet bi-annually with Fellowship cohort to share best practices, network and explore collaborations

If selected, Executive leader must attend a thought leadership workshop called "Write To Change the World" with The OpEd Project at CMC in either Winter (Sunday, Dec 2) or Spring (date TBD).
Kravis Lab will sponsor the following:

- All workshop costs
- Student engagement costs
- A nominal seed fund to implement the impact tracking strategy


- Organization must be based in and working with constituents in the Inland Empire
- Must be operating at least 3 years
