How

OUTCOMES

Our team of experts have been hard at work researching, defining, and talking with the most impactful organizations around the country. We have collaborated with these partners to create short-term, high impact outcomes designed to amplify these organizations. If you have a project that you would like help with, you can use the application form to tell us more!

COLLABORATION

WYRD Fellowships are a tool for you to further yourself and those around you. Each team is paired with an advisor who is a thought leader in the space. The teams work together, with the guidance of the advisor on pre-determined projects. This is a way for inter-generational groups to help each other and the communities around them.

CONTENT

We are in the midst of building the full scope of this project which launches on May 18th. We are building this campaign to redefine the culture around social change. Our short-form, human story approach allows you to see into the lives of the badass people who are involved.

Why

IMPACT YOUR COMMUNITY

Each project is designed to have a measurable social, cultural, or environmental impact. We are especially focused on assisting vulnerable populations effected by COVID.

GAIN EXPERIENCE

We want you to come out of this experience closer to your own goals. Each project will not only help you add a resume point, but will give you mentorship and a little extra cash in your pocket.

AMPLIFY THE WHOLE

Our unique content strategy makes it easy to see what work is being done, who is doing it, and how you can get involved. We are not creating anything new, rather reorganizing the pieces to uplift individuals and organizations alike.
