The need for leadership in our country has never been greater. That is why we created the Eagle Leader Fellow Program.
This week is a very special episode as we talk with three of Team RWB’s Eagle Leader Fellows. These leaders have spent the past several months on a mission to make their communities stronger.
You’ll hear from Dennis Volpe (Jacksonville, FL), Marissa May (Omaha, NE), and Kris Lord (San Francisco, CA). They share their experiences of taking up the mantle of leadership and how they’ve grown as individuals through the process.
The Eagle Leader Fellowship is a 12-month leadership development experience with a focus on leadership education, mentorship, and experiential learning. Our first full class of fellows have done and absolutely amazing job (we’ve hired 5 of them to the full-time staff). Applications are opening soon for the next class of fellows.
