C2 Leadership Institute

The C2 Leadership Institute is designed to cultivate leaders who are interested in civic engagement, public-private partnerships, and being a social justice advocate for the community while strengthening church and community partnerships. Past C2 Leadership Institute cohort fellows have included high school and college students, community leaders, and church leaders. These emerging leaders are passionate about developing partnerships at the intersection of church and community.

As part of the program, FACE provides opportunities for the cohort to meet with various leaders in government, corporate, faith institutions and the community while equipping them with practical skills as fundraising, media and government relations, partnership building, networking, financial literacy, grant writing, eventing, advocacy, program development, outreach strategy, church administrative work and AAPI community needs and data points. Fellows work on a personal community service project that they seek to launch or strengthen.
