The Gratitude Network is creating an incredible network of empowered leaders of scaling social impact organizations that impact the lives of under-served children and youth globally. Through this Fellowship, we provide leadership development that leads to organizational transformation. We engage Coaches and Expert Advisors to enable Social Entrepreneurs to scale their organizations to impact more children. They also bring together these social impact change-makers in person and virtually to learn and grow from one another.
