2018 Cohort Organizations

We are so excited to announce the members of our 2018 Seattle-based Capacity Building Cohort!

The Capacity Building Cohort is the flagship program of NAC, offering knowledge, skills, and access to a network of inspiring peers navigating similar challenges and hopes in their work for equity and social justice in their community. Year after year, we have been honored to support organizations in achieving their aspirations, not only through the consistent support of trusted coaches who recognize and respect community wisdom, but through the transformative power of the collective and what we can accomplish together.

Thank you to everyone who applied for this year’s cohort. We had an amazing group of applicants who inspired us with their work and we hope many of them will re-apply for future cohorts. This year, the cohort will consist of the following organizations:

  • Cierra Sisters
  • Dignity for Divas
  • Hillman City Collaboratory
  • Somali Bantu Community Services of Washington
  • Somali Parents Education Board
  • South King County Discipline Coalition
  • STEM Path Innovation Network*
  • Tasveer
  • The Austin Foundation*
  • World Mind Creation Academy*

We are so excited to embark on a year of learning and growth together, supporting each other to reach our goals and building our collective strength.
