Rising Star Initiative


What is the Rising Star Initiative?

The Rising Star Initiative is for young non-profit professionals who could benefit from resources and mentorship to improve their skills and further their careers.

What It Involves:

As a Rising Star, you have the opportunity to create a self-directed learning journey that corresponds to your interests and to Tamarack’s expertise. This opportunity will offer you guidance as you customize a learning curriculm focused around a particular area of interest that will help you build your capacity and experience and apply it to your future work in community change.

Each person’s customized curriculum will include:

  • Attending a national or regional Tamarack workshop (up to $1000)
  • Participating in webinars related to the theme of interest
  • Connecting to a Community of Practice, if possible
  • Selecting relevant online tools and resources
  • Mentorship coaching from a Tamarack Director

Why did we create this opportunity?

Nearly 70% of Tamarack learners are mid-career or older professionals who have been doing their jobs for 8+ years, according to a membership survey. We are making an intentional effort to bring young professionals into our learning network. By giving young people an opportunity for skill development early on, we can help accelerate his or her impact towards building positive community change.
