To show its committment to the next generation of community leaders, Ford launched The People’s Fleet, a campaign to meet the transportation needs of 12 local organizations in the Los Angeles area.
Starting Monday, Ford is supplying 4 organizations with a 2011 Ford Fiesta for 8 weeks, while 8 different organizations will be able to apply for and share the a project car for 1-week periods of time during the course of the program.
In addition to the car (and a complimentary gas card!), the lucky organizations will also be provided with a team of storytellers and a mini-video camera that will help them document their experience and spread the word about their work.
Organizations across Southern California are encouraged to apply to join The People’s Fleet.
The qualifications are simple; if you are a next generation registered 501c3 leader or organization pursuing positive social change locally or globally by implementing unique, creative strategies, you can apply to take advantage of these resources and gain a once-in-a-lifetime chance to share your story.
If you are not an organization and simply want to help better the LA community, submit your idea for Your LA and enter for a chance to win $10,000 to put your solution into action!
