Current Challenge Projects

Challenge Projects are the heart of our program. Fellows work together and collaborate with local nonprofits to help move their missions forward—addressing our city’s greatest needs and opportunities. Through these strategic, intellectually-based, community-focused projects, Fellows learn by doing while also making a positive, tangible contribution to the nonprofits served and ultimately the community.
