Cooperation Buffalo is excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for our first cohort of Cooperative Changemakers: A Community Power Fellowship! For 10 Wednesdays from September 4th through November 6th, participants will engage in classroom training with experts in the skills required to be a changemaker in the cooperative movement, including cooperative business development, finance, governance, democratic decision making, and conflict resolution. On Wednesday, November 13th, the Fellowship course will end with a graduation celebration.

This Fellowship builds upon the success of our Cooperative Academy training program, through which we’ve trained over 150 co-op entrepreneurs in 5 years. The Cooperative Changemakers Fellowship seeks to cultivate a vibrant and engaged community of cooperative entrepreneurs, organizers and advocates, each contributing in their own way to driving positive social and economic change in Buffalo.

 

After completing the course, Fellowship participants will have access to:

  • One-on-one technical assistance from cooperative business developers
  • Training and support in fundraising, planning, and other start-up requirements
  • Access to a peer-support network of existing Buffalo cooperatives and fellow Changemakers

The Cooperative Changemakers Fellowship is ideal for those who want to:

  • Join and contribute to Buffalo’s growing cooperative community
  • Gain a deep understanding of the principles, practices, and potential of cooperatives
  • Develop practical skills for an economy that puts people first
  • Create actionable plans for community-owned and community-led change

Applications are due by August 1st and the Fellowship is offered free of charge. For more information visit www.cooperationbuffalo.org/fellowship, or contact us at [email protected] or ‪(716) 541-0407.
