Community Accelerator Program by Facebook is a program to equip impactful communities with training, mentoring and funds to grow. It is an evolution of its Scholarship program, which in 2019 supported 115 participating leaders around the world. Together, those leaders reported that their projects impacted more than 1.9 million lives through online community support, use of helpful resources, and other activities possible through the program. In their conversations with community leaders in recent years, they learned that many of them seek support and guidance on how to grow their communities. Therefore, they want to take a holistic approach to support these communities. In addition to creating the educational tools and resources they need, the Facebook team is also creating programmatic ways to provide training, support, and funding to enable larger communities to have an even greater positive impact on the world.
