We’re all about helping each other here at Roozt, and it’s always great to be able to support new organizations that further the advancement of social innovation!
Our friends at The Compass Fellowship are currently accepting applications for their competitive college freshmen initiative program. The Compass Fellowship, now in its second year of growth and supported by The Kenneth Cole Foundation, is seeking the most ambitious, passionate freshmen in 12 campuses for training as social entrepreneurs. It’s an exciting process: almost 2,000 will apply, but, given 15 fellowship openings per campus, only the best 180 will be selected.
Once selected, Compass Fellows will join the incredible Compass Community, a growing global network of young, passionate, and like-minded social innovators. They will work alongside committed peer mentors for a year on their campus and be granted numerous opportunities to interact with business leaders locally and nationally. Together, Compass Fellows and Mentors will form a tight-knit community of student leaders on their campus, actively seeking to change the world together.
The strength of the program really is this Compass Community, which will:
· Connect Fellows with peer mentors who will inspire them to think adventurously
· Provide Fellows with resources to empower them to live and work consciously
· Demand that Fellows participate proactively, pushing them to start a social venture and learn by immersing themselves.
Through the peer-driven curriculum based on personal development and the philosophy that talented people learn best by doing, Fellows are inspired, pushed, and empowered to start their very own social venture during their freshmen year of college.
Through the Compass Fellows community, these freshmen will have access to countless resources and a tremendous network of social entrepreneurs and business leaders. They will develop friendships and hands-on experience that will alter how they see and work in the world forever after.
