Become an OFA community engagement fellow this fall

OFA supporters are change-makers. We're bold. We speak out for progress. And we fight for change by getting organized. Right now, we need folks like you—smart, passionate people—more than ever. Whether you're new to organizing or just need to brush up on your skills, the Community Engagement Fellowship equips organizers of all levels with the tools and training to successfully run events that bring communities together around important issues.

For six weeks, fellows learn from experienced organizers and trainers through weekly webinars. Fellows get a deep dive into the theory of change behind community organizing, then work side-by-side with experienced community organizers where they live.

Throughout the program, fellows are challenged to build community relationships, develop fundamental organizing skills, and explore their leadership potential.

What you’ll do as a community engagement fellow:

Attend the fellows onboarding in your area
Attend weekly webinars every Wednesday at 7:30 pm CT from September 27 to November 1
Complete weekly assignments after each webinar
Work with your fellows manager to execute a community engagement event
Application process and timeline:

Application deadline: Tuesday, September 12, 2017
Acceptance date: Tuesday, September 19, 2017
Program onboarding training: Saturday, September 23, 2017
