East Bay Leadership Fellow

HandsOn Leadership is a unique year-long program that couples specialized professional development with hands-on volunteer experiences to cultivate strong civic leaders in the Bay Area’s social sector. In this fun and and engaging program, participants work together in diverse, region-based teams on a number of goals meant to highlight the challenges met by most nonprofits in our community. In turn, participants gain relevant knowledge and develop applicable skills that will enhance their ability to create change in their community while supporting the staff and mission of HandsOn Bay Area.
