Final Call for Visionary Cause Leaders: Deadline April 21
"A visionary is a leader of excellence who sees what others do not see,
who achieves for now and plans for the future,
who positively impacts different generations and raises up other visionaries." 
― Onyi Anyado


With the hundreds of amazing Fellowship applications flooding in, we want to ensure we are best able to match talent to opportunity. That's where our Visionary Cause Leaders come in!

A Visionary Cause Leader (VCL) is a leader at a partner organization that is building solutions to Baltimore’s biggest challenges. A VCL can represent a nonprofit organization, for-profit social enterprise, or government agency at which Baltimore Corps Fellows are deployed in high-impact roles designed to grow and lead powerful initiatives. VCLs host Fellows for one year, with the option to hire long-term beyond the Fellowship. 

If you are interested in learning more about the opportunity to become a Visionary Cause Leader or you know of someone we should be talking to, please reach out to me at your earliest convenience. We hope to have preliminary conversations with potential Visionary Cause Leaders by Friday, April 21.
