Celebrating our 2018 Fellows

After a year long commitment of growth and learning, we celebrated the graduation of our 2018 Fellows, Madeleine Hernandez Rodriguez and Mayerling Castillo!

Their time at Prospera has been a great experience for everyone. Their hard work has been essential to support Prospera at key moments, but most importantly to their personal and professional development!

Madeleine Hernández focused her fellowship on Marketing and Social media. Her role was instrumental in promoting the 2018 Summit and Prospera’s programs. She is now a Client Manager at AnewAmerica, one of Prospera’s partner organizations. Made says: “For me the fellowship is about committing yourself to changing the way your actions impact your life and that of those around you through the magic of cooperation.”

Mayerling Castillo focused her fellowship on indigenous cooperatives. She led a workshop on “The 7 Zapatista Principles” and was a co-facilitator at several of Explora’s workshops. Maye says: “The Fellowship for Cooperative Leadership has been a great opportunity for my professional and personal growth. Before joining the program, I was actively seeking for a way to get involved with entrepreneurial co-ops in the bay area; it seems that I found that and much more. This fellowship is motivating me to continue my studies in business and to increase my commitment to social entrepreneurship. “

Congratulations to our fellows!
