The Change Collective is a dynamic leadership community created to train, connect and elevate local changemakers in communities across our country.

The Change Collective develops local leaders, helping them bring people together, bridge divides, and solve problems at the community level. Local cohorts are composed of leaders representing a range of identities, backgrounds, vocations and ideologies.

Our Impact

Launched in 2023, the Change Collective will train leaders in three pilot cities - Chicago, IL, Detroit, MI and Jackson, MS. We will grow our work in cities across the country in the years ahead. Members of the Change Collective will have access to training opportunities, leadership development, and a wide network of mentors both locally and nationally.

“It’s a way to bring emerging leaders from different identities and backgrounds together, and help them build relationships and solve problems in their communities. Because real change happens one person, one community, one connection at a time.”
