But wait, who are “we”?  

The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, contracted us, the Environmental Leadership Program to help build your alumni network. 

Since 2000, we have supported environmental and social change leaders from across the country by:

  • Connecting improbable partners - getting folx from all different backgrounds in the same room, developing trust through relationship and building common ground.

  • Network weaving among 1000+ diverse Senior Fellows (ELP Alumni) in our network

  • Sharing resources through an opportunity board and a digital library of webinars and alumni made documents

this is how we stay connected digitally

Now that you are a part of the DDCSP Alumni Network and the larger Environmental Leadership Program network, here are all the resources available:

Communities that play together, stay together, every year we bring alumni together from each DDCSP program to build community, develop your leadership skills and catalyze action.  As a DDCSP Alumni, you can participate in an Alumni Leadership Cohort (ALC) at White Oak Conservation Center to meet other DDCSPers and bring your ideas for the network to life. Check out the experiences of previous ALCs here. Save the date - the next ALC will be September 9th-13th.
