COURAGEOUS & TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERSHIP   BUILDING COLLECTIVE POWER   PAY IT FORWARD

EVC Fellows are on a journey toward transformation and empowerment

In January 2023, Eight Flint, Michigan based nonprofit organizations, directed by leaders of color, were invited for a new 18-month fellowship cohort designed to strengthen their individual, organizational, and collective resiliency. The inaugural Enterprising Ventures of Color (EVC) Fellowship Cohort will focus on strengthening the long-term capacity and infrastructure of participating nonprofit organizations. EVC also works to encourage trust-based philanthropy practices for funders.

Program Roadmap

This fellowship aims to bring non-profit leaders together to benefit from executive-level coaching from a team at Enterprising Ventures of Color who have been invited to guide the process. Our programming includes the learning institute, financial workshops, one-on-one coaching, and transformational funding through enterprise capital. 

"EVC is making an impact in the city of Flint by aligning us leaders with the resources and tools to ensure that the true identity and trueness of our work can be uplifted and elevated at the level in which is should be."
