The C2 Leadership Institute is designed to cultivate young 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. Currently, the C2 Leadership Institute cohort consists of college students, community leaders, and church leaders from four pilot churches. These emerging leaders are passionate about developing partnerships at the intersection of church and community.
As part of the 10 week program, the cohort meets once a week where KCCD/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. Interns are at the church site the remaining four days and working on a community service project as part of the internship.
