C2C stands for Campus to Congress, to Capitol, to City Hall, and to Corporation. C2C Fellows recognize that stabilizing the climate is not the work of a year, of a presidential term, or of a decade. It is the work of a generation. C2C Fellows is designed to engage students and recent graduates who have leadership ambition, and provide them knowledge, skills, courage, and a powerful, ongoing network, to help lead a global revolution.
History of C2C
C2C Fellows workshops are modeled on a series of weekend training sessions organized by Dr. Eban Goodstein starting in 2006. Goodstein’s approach is inspired by the civil rights activism work of the Highlander Center in Tennessee.
C2C Fellows started as a series of campus-to-congress conversations in 2010. Our first leadership workshop occurred in the fall of 2011. Since then, we’ve trained over 250 young leaders from across the country
By 2018, C2C Fellows envisions 25 of its graduates running for national political office; 25 in leading private sector roles; and dozens more active as leaders in business and politics at the state and local level.
