New Sector’s Residency in Social Enterprise (RISE) Fellowship program is an intensive, 11-month Fellowship for emerging leaders and recent college graduates who are committed to the social sector.

Minneapolis-Saint Paul, the “Twin Cities,” will join Boston, San Francisco, and Chicago as the RISE program’s 4th location. Fellows will be selected from a highly competitive pool and matched with a nonprofit organization in the Twin Cities to serve full-time completing projects that allow organizations to more effectively achieve their missions. Each project is designed to make a lasting impact beyond the Fellow’s service term. Throughout their service term, Fellows participate in New Sector’s training program by engaging in the Social Impact Leadership Curriculum, which covers a wide range of topics that build the skills and tools for effective social sector leadership.

In addition, each Fellow is matched with an individual mentor who provides support for host site projects, professional development, and career planning. Mentors include management consultants and nonprofit leaders.
