Prime Mover fellows commit to a two-pronged program. First, each individual develops a work plan and receives $60,000 in grant funds over two years to achieve his or her goals. Prime Movers must use the funds for individual professional development. Fellows also dedicate five to seven days per year to participate in scheduled activities such as seminars, retreats, peer-to-peer conference calls, and other meaningful gatherings. These events create strong bonds between fellowship participants.

  • Hire an executive coach
  • Hire a public speaking coach
  • Hire a media consultant
  • Attend a media training
  • Attend a leadership program
  • Write a handbook or guide to support your movement
  • Write a book
