Ready to change your city?

DiverseCity Civic Action Fellow Are you a rising leader ready to change your city?

Apply now to be a CivicAction DiverseCity Fellow.

CivicAction's DiverseCity Fellows program is one of North America's leading urban fellows programs for rising city-builders.

The one-year leadership program supports Fellows to become better leaders and gives them hands-on opportunities to work with high-performers outside their sectors and industries to create change in our communities.

The Fellows:
  • Lead their own city-building projects;
  • Explore leadership and current issues with the region's influencers and visionaries;
  • Get matched with a mentor who supports them in their leadership journey;
  • Expand their networks across the region.

The program brings together emerging leaders who reflect the diversity of our region, and kick-starts their collaboration with a wide network of city-builders and leaders in the public, private, and non-profit sectors.

93% of past Fellows agree the program diversified and expanded their network across the region.

Who should apply?

The DiverseCity Fellows program taps the region's most promising city-building leaders -- creative problem-solvers who are ambitious, results-oriented, collaborative and inclusive.

If you have a track record of strong leadership, between 5-15 years of professional experience, and a passion for making your city a better place, apply now.

Open to individuals of all backgrounds living in any part of the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.

Deadline: July 8, 2014 5:00 PM (EST)
