Rare steps aside to let others lead change. Rare partners with local organizations and trains one of its employees, a Rare Fellow, to run a marketing campaign that inspires change to benefit the community as well as the environment. The skills imparted through Rare’s training — ranging from project design and management to workshop facilitation and market research — remain in the community and within the local organization. Change endures long after Rare’s direct involvement ends.
power in partnerships
Rare partners with anywhere between six to 12 organizations or governments in a specific region to run a program on the same solution at the same time. Programs typically last two to three years. Rare provides the training, mentoring and technical support each partner needs to run Rare’s signature Pride campaigns in their communities. These programs build community support for the local organization’s missions and projects. Additionally, partners and Rare Fellows gain access to a global network of peers who are running, or have run, Pride campaigns.
a rare fit
Rare recruits partners based on their compatibility and commitment to the program.
Because Rare works on specific solutions addressing distinct environmental threats,
recruiting is done through targeted outreach within each region.
