About the Fellowship
People living in small towns and out in the country have often felt that they have to leave home to make a positive impact. Our small towns have lost jobs, lost land, and lost people to the big cities. We don’t want to lose anymore– we want to win.
We want to win things like healthcare, living wages, and safe and healthy environments for our kids to grow up in.
Down Home North Carolina’s Fellowship Program wants to help get these wins by developing your leadership skills in the place you know best: Home.
This six month, full time, paid fellowship program will give you the skills, support, and on-the-ground experience you need to become an impactful change maker in your community.
For too long, rural folks haven’t been listened to- but most of our states’ residents live in small towns and the country!
At Down Home, we believe that we need to get back to having conversations again. The people in power benefit from us being divided and apart, so we’re talking to our neighbors again to build a movement that works together to get the things we need!
