Technical Assistance


FACE C2 Fellows gain the tools, skills and relationships to create success and sustainability in their community development initiatives. Over the course of the Institute, each fellow launches or strengthens a community project. Fellows are mentored by various leaders, including funders, government officials, media, faith leaders and community development experts. Fellows develop their projects using the skills they attain such as fundraising, media and government relations, partnership building, networking, financial literacy, grant writing, eventing, advocacy, program development, outreach strategies, and community needs assessments. Finally, fellows receive ongoing one on one technical assistance to ensure successful implementation of their project.

NoNProfit Black Belt Assessment

Tangible Outcomes: C2 fellows' average increase in capacity is 199%.

An integral part of our C2 Leadership Institute is our Non-Profit Black Belt Assessment©. This innovative tool was developed by FACE in 2016 to measure the success and change in capacity of each fellow at the start of the C2 Leadership Institute versus at the end of the program. It is also a powerful roadmap to guide fellows to successful community engagement and partnership.
