About the Fellowship
To encourage our state’s nonprofit health leaders to become effective advocates or to improve their advocacy skills, the Sunflower Foundation has created a year-long custom designed training program unlike any other in the nation. The Sunflower Foundation Advocacy Fellowship helps leaders in health-related nonprofit organizations develop the understanding, experience, and expertise they need to become even more powerful voices for the Kansans they serve. So far, 89 community leaders have completed the program — find their bios and more information here.
The Fellowship requires a 12-month commitment and includes six sessions (averaging three days per session). The sessions are scheduled in November, January, March, May, July and September. Fellows must make a commitment to attend all of the training sessions.
The nonprofit leaders selected to be Advocacy Fellows learn the skills necessary to participate in the public policy process on the local, state, and national levels.
