Convening fellows from across North America, the Community Trustbuilding Fellowship (CTF) seeks to build multisector networks of facilitators and change agents committed to healing historical wounds, creating new shared narratives and building healthy and racially equitable communities. Based in Richmond, Virginia, CTF develops the capacity of community leaders to become authentic trustbuilders capable of overcoming divisions of race, culture, economics and politics.

 Throughout CTF, experiential learning processes are intentionally designed to increase fellows’ capacity to address their own discomfort around social differences such as race, gender, age, religion, socioeconomic background, etc. Fellows and faculty work to cultivate brave space that allows for personal transformation that can lead to social change, through the difficult work of dialogue. This experience will challenge and stretch fellows intellectually, emotionally and spiritually, and fellows will leave equipped and empowered to facilitate difficult conversations and integrate trustbuilding processes into their personal and professional lives.
