The Alliance for Children and Families is now accepting applications for its fourth cohort of New Voices Civic Engagement Fellows to be selected in January, 2014. The fellowship is designed to recognize and fuel the leadership of individuals who are involved in civic engagement work at the local and regional level. Selected fellowship projects are designed to embolden staff and community leaders, while simultaneously building the civic engagement capacity of the human service sector.
Successful applicants will receive $8,000 to implement a civic engagement project at their sponsoring organization. The 2014 New Voices Civic Engagement Fellows will implement a self-designed action plan for boosting community advocacy, convene with the cohort four times during the year, participate in a two-and-a-half-day cohort gathering, and organize and host one civic engagement training opportunity for Alliance members.
Applications are accepted now through December 13, 2013, and are open to individuals connected to Alliance for Children and Families and United Neighborhood Centers of America (UNCA) member organizations. Individuals can be staff, volunteers, partners, or have some other connection. If you or someone you know is a budding civic engagement leader, consider this opportunity to increase engagement and advocacy in your community. Apply now!
