Mink'a Talent Exchange

The Mink'a Talent Exchange supports Fellows helping Fellows to increase their impact in communities. Inspired by the Quechua “Mink'a” — a tradition and celebration of collaborative work exchanged in-kind for the community’s benefit—when Fellows volunteer their time and talent towards another’s initiative, Project Mink’a can underwrite travel to that community. The Talent Exchange, a new feature launching in May, helps Fellows discover and tap into even more collaborative partners, talents, and resources in the KFLA network, using the online Kellogg Fellows Community.
