AWOFINC Logo

For six weeks, fellows will learn the theory of change behind community organizing through weekly webinars led by experts in the field. Under the guidance of volunteer managers, fellows will then put their new skills into practice by organizing actual community engagement or mobilizing events.

Prospective fellows;

  • Fellows will be expected to work in teams
  • To plan the community engagement event from start to finish
  • Attend weekly meetings with the team
  • Will need to complete homework assignments
  • Conceptualize the implementation of an organizing strategy
  • Work with the team to recruit volunteers
  • This fellowship is a commitment of approx. 5 hours per week
  • Share orientation training date - put this on your calendar
The fellows then are expected to work with our affiliates, committees and partners to run community engagement events by the end of the program and each month thereafter. Fellows who miss an excessive number of webinars and do not complete assignments with their team will not graduate from the program. If you miss a webinar, you must notify the Training Lead and make sure to watch the class recording the day after.
