Rust Belt Rising: Apply to the Building Thriving Communities Course

Rust Belt Rising is looking for the most promising emerging leaders to join their network of 400 changemakers as we learn from fellow practitioners on how we can help our communities thrive. Sign up below to be a Community Leadership Fellow with Rust Belt Rising this spring.

In Zoom sessions, participants will hear from presenters who helped their areas in the Midwest accelerate economic growth and create opportunity for all. By sharing the best ideas across our region in trainings on economic, environmental, education, and other community issues, leaders will learn how to get started with initiatives that benefit their area and grow their leadership.

If you are or are considering running for office, helping a campaign, or bringing new insights to your local involvement, please sign up.
