PolitiCorps fellows come from all over the country and from all walks of life, and have a diverse spread of interests, but each of them will be challenged to give their absolute best in direct work on the progressive social issues of the present in order to inspire the next wave of innovation for social progressive change.
The fellowship consists of daily hands-on learning from people engaged at all levels of the political process in Oregon (policy makers, activists, elected officials, badass organization leaders, and more!) in the mornings followed by direct engagement with the issues in the afternoons. In years past the fellows have worked on issues such as marriage equality, access to higher education, voter registration, environmental justice, housing affordability, and more. Fellows are eligible for a financial stipend and housing aid. This year the program will run from June 18th to August 24th.
Of course, there is only so much information we can give before it becomes self-righteous. So let's move on to you! That's what we're really here for right? Who are you and why should you join the ranks of over 300 PolitiCorps alums?
