On April 18th, 12 passionate individuals, aiming to better their communities, completed the Woodlawn Effect Fellowship Program (WE Lead). We proudly celebrated with this group as they became the second cohort of WE Lead Fellows.
WE Lead is designed to address the community’s gap in access to leadership development opportunities. Led by Woodlawn Resident and Woodlawn United Founding Board Member, Myeisha Hutchinson, the intergenerational program is designed to refine and grow participants' leadership skills and challenge them to step outside their comfort zones.
Graduates are prepared to assess, identify, and solve problems in their community and are actively creating positive changes. During the closing ceremony, WE Lead Fellows presented proposals to address issues facing their communities, including community cleanliness and wellness projects.
Rounding out the evening, we were pleased to welcome back Timothy Lanier, WE Lead Fellow Class I, who gave a charge to the graduating fellows, as well as Toi Thronton, WBRC FOX6 Anchor, and Jason Avery, Woodlawn Community President, who joined a leadership panel discussion moderated by WE Lead Program Facilitator, Jason Meadows.
