Awakening & Transforming

In 2022, Foellinger Foundation launched the Sonder Fellowship, a leadership training program for BIPOC leaders, by BIPOC leaders, that are living, working or serving in Southeast Fort Wayne. The program combines individual leadership development with asset-based community development (ABCD) to support opportunities that position the southeast quadrant of Fort Wayne to thrive.

One Lucky Guitar partnered with the Foundation to capture a series of videos to tell the stories of the leaders who were transformed by the fellowship experience.

In this overview video, Sonder graduates share how the program helped them discover and understand themselves as individual leaders, and how they’ll utilize that knowledge to impact their communities.
