clinton community fellows application

Thank you for your interest in the Clinton Community Fellows Program. Energize Clinton County and the Clinton County Regional Planning Commission are excited to introduce this new program and grateful to the Cornerstone Foundation and the Clinton County Foundation for providing the funding to make this program possible.
The Clinton Community Fellows Program will provide an opportunity for young leaders to develop valuable skills and experience in a rural, small-city environment. This will be accomplished by recruiting and matching young, locally-connected talent with the needs of local businesses. Under the supervision and mentorship of the Clinton County Regional Planning Commission, the Wilmington Clinton County Chamber of Commerce, Clinton County Leadership Institute, and Energize Clinton County, Fellows will work on a project basis with business partners to provide additional business development capacity to assist local businesses in achieving their strategic objectives.
In addition to the hands-on business development experience, Fellows will take part in networking, volunteer projects, and other community-oriented activities to help them make connections and identify opportunities for long-term employment in the community.
The Fellows selection process will be competitive and based on the best match between prospective Fellows' education and skill sets and identified community and economic development needs.
The program is slated to begin June 14 and end the week of August 16, 2010. The Clinton Community Fellows program is a full-time commitment, with approximately 30 hours per week focused on business-related projects and 10 hours per week to be focused on networking and other community-related efforts.
