2019 Youth Fellowship Application
What is the Youth Fellowship?

The youth fellowship is an academic two-year internship designed in partnership between CTCORE-Organize Now! (CTCORE) and Green Village Initiative (GVI) to engage four youth in hopes to support young folks in creating a local, community-run food system in Bridgeport, CT. The Youth Food Justice Fellowship is a two-year commitment.

Year 1 consists of three terms: February-April, June-August, and October-December. The first term will be focused on developing a critical analysis of the food system on the macro and micro levels. The second term will consist of participating in exploratory trainings, workshops, and developing community connections. In the third term, youth will outline their vision for a local community food system.

Year 2 will focus on Youth Fellows creating and implementing their community projects with the support of GVI and CTCORE. The fellows can expect to meet with their supervisor bi-weekly for 30 minutes to an hour. During the check-in, the fellows will have a chance to report what is going on, ask any questions or discuss any concerns that might have arisen since the last time they met. Additionally, this will be the time to check in and explore projects or interest around food and to have an exploratory conversation around creating a local community ran food system in Bridgeport.
