THE 2014-2015 BALLE LOCAL ECONOMY FELLOWSHIP IS ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS NOW!

16 Fellows + 18 Months + 8 Gatherings = Exponential Impact

The BALLE Fellowship is North America’s only fellowship dedicated solely to advancing the local economy movement, and where other programs focus on individual social entrepreneurs trying to scale single enterprises, we focus on local economy connectors – people who each represent, convene, and influence communities of hundreds of community entrepreneurs.

This is an incredible opportunity for top innovators to connect with their peers, strengthen their capacity for transformative personal and community change, and help reshape local economies across North America.

ARE YOU – OR DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO SHOULD BE – OUR NEXT BALLE FELLOW?

Our Fellows, hailing from across North America, are visionaries and natural connectors who inspire, transform and revitalize their communities using locally owned businesses as a springboard for social change and economic justice.

“BALLE has the ability to change the country and to create prosperity for all in a new economy. The Fellowship enables each of us to learn from each other, find inspiration or hydration when needed, and provides us the strength and knowledge to change the world.”
–Kimber Lanning, 2011-2012 BALLE Fellow, Local First Arizona
