Founded in 2011, the Foundation's Civic Leaders Fellowship Program builds area students’ personal skills and ability to find meaningful employment in our region upon college graduation. Area nonprofit organizations, government entities, and businesses are given the opportunity to meet hardworking students eager to stay in the Mid-Ohio Valley and are given the opportunity to work collectively to improve our region’s potential workforce for the future.

“I would definitely recommend that others be a part of this Program. I don’t know anyone in my field of study who has had this type of first-hand experience.”

- Steven Boston, Wood County native and Fairmont State University student
