Read the following directions carefully.
The deadline for this application is Sun March 31 10 PM EDT
Senior Fellows are paid as staff of the program, and help manage Fellows during group work, field work, and other activities. They aid in the logistical preparation for programming, fundraising, transportation, staffing of elected officials (attending to them, transporting them, and keeping them on schedule while upholding the highest standards of professionalism), and supervision of Democracy Summer Fellows. Senior Fellows report to the regional director(s) for their city, who in turn report to the national director.
Senior Fellows are paid a stipend to be disbursed in at least two installments over the course of the summer. The amount of that stipend totals $3000.
Senior Fellows are expected to work at least an hour before Fellows arrive and an hour after they leave during weekdays. Their hours can be highly variable. They often are called upon to drive to canvasses and other events, though driving is not a job requirement.
The application questions that follow are intended to help us get a better sense of what prior political experience and contributions to the Democracy Summer program you have made, why you're passionate about our mission of mobilizing the future and training the next generation of progressive leaders and organizers, and about your schedule availability and why you think this is the best way for you to contribute to advancing progressive causes in 2019.
Democracy Summer 2019 includes 2 five and a half week sessions (May 29-July 5; July 10-Aug 16 are DMV dates for Fellows). Senior Fellows will be expected to work starting Mon 5/20 and ending Fri 8/23. Please email with questions about this schedule requirement. Work weeks are an estimated 40 paid work hours over 6 days (plus one unpaid lunch hour five days a week).
We are committed to reflecting the rich diversity of our American communities and creating a rewarding and inclusive environment that exemplifies the broad movement we wish to create. We encourage individuals of all backgrounds to apply.
