Request for Applications #2019-03: Solano Vision & Impact Cohort Program

First 5 Solano, in partnership with Solano County Health & Social Services, invites Solano nonprofit leadership to apply for sponsorship to attend the Solano Vision & Impact Cohort Program to be held from September 2019 to January 2020. The course is funded through a partnership between First 5 Solano Children and Families Commission and Solano County Health & Social Services.

The Solano Vision & Impact Cohort Program is a hands-on capacity building program for county nonprofits that uses a combination of individualized coaching and peer-to-peer learning to expand and accelerate participating organizations’ efforts to refine their strategic plan and theory of change. This is an intensive 6-month program that will provide participants with a collaborative learning environment, tailored coaching, tools and techniques to clarify their organization’s vision and impact and create a culture of learning within their organizations.

This program is being offered in Fairfield and can accommodate up to 24 Solano County nonprofit leaders (8 selected agencies, with up to 2 staff and 1 board member per agency). Sponsorship includes coverage of the $10,000 registration fee for each agency. The time required to attend the program, as well as the work required before the program, between course sessions, and following the program is the responsibility of the attendees from each nonprofit agency.


An optional information session will be held on Monday, July 1, 2019 from 1 pm to 2 pm at 601 Texas St., Conference Room B, Fairfield CA.
