Program Impacts

FNMP program impact stories were collected from past and present FMNP graduates during the summer of 2018.

This project yielded personal accounts of how the program has enriched personal lives, empowered individuals professionally, and equipped graduates with the necessary knowledge to create long lasting sustainable positive change in their communities.

We conducted 52 phone interviews, recorded 225 impact stories, and found 86% of participants report engaging in their community using FMNP knowledge post program.
