2022-2023 We Are Healers Fellowship

October 28, 2022
We Are Healers is building a social media community alongside the Fellowship Program that engages future Healers in a deeper and more relational way. The Fellowship will build and grow this community, cultivating Fellows’ existing social media talent and connections, while providing mentorship and professional development opportunities. Our aim is to expand these resources and inspire Native youth along their personal and professional journey.
In this 10-month grant period, We Are Healers will offer up to 10 Fellowship opportunities for Native students on their path toward a health profession.
