Facebook Community Accelerator Program 2020 for Community Leaders

Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. An important part of this is supporting the leaders who foster community—people who offer encouragement, build bridges and drive change. We invest in and empower these leaders to start, grow and sustain meaningful communities that positively impact people’s lives.
