The nonprofit world is welcoming 21 highly trained professionals into its ranks. The new nonprofit CEOs are members of the 2018 Andeavor Leadership Fellows cohort. They recently completed a nine-month intensive training course at the San Antonio Area Foundation.

As part of the Andeavor Fellows Program, participants receive in-depth leadership training provided by HOLT Development Service, Inc., nonprofit management training led by local experts, and hands-on mentoring/coaching from seasoned nonprofit CEOs.

The Andeavor Leadership Fellows program is open to nonprofit CEOs who have less than five years of experience and executive leaders poised for the next step into the CEO ranks and are selected via a competitive application process.
