Application & Selection Details: Fellows should have worked (volunteer or paid) in one of the target communities in East Baltimore (primarily McElderry Park, Middle East, Oliver, Ellwood Park/Madison or Milton/Montford) or West Baltimore (primarily Edmondson Village, Sandtown-Winchester, Franklintown) for a minimum of 3 years. You should be able to demonstrate an ability to work well with others, communicate effectively, and have leadership potential (i.e., vision/goals, strong desire to make an impact, confident, empathetic, etc.).
Please note: if you are employed, you must have employer approval to participate and allow for 20% release time to work on this leadership program for which your employer will be reimbursed. We will require employer verification if you are selected for an interview. Please note that this is NOT a supplement to your salary; you are getting 20% release time from your job to participate in BNLP one day a week and we will reimburse your employer for that 20% time (check will be made directly to your employer) plus fringe benefits. This is an intensive leadership program that requires weekly training sessions that last 6 to 8 hours and outside reading, assignments and session assessments.
