We are seeking students, recent graduates, and professionals from New Jersey who are interested in global health and public policy. Our Advocacy Fellows secure meetings with Congressional staff and produce virtual town halls to speak to their legislator directly.

This is an outstanding role for volunteers interested in global health and international development, as well as those interested in grassroots advocacy to Congressional representatives! We are a welcoming team meeting virtually twice a week. Additionally, we offer Fellows the opportunity to hear from leaders in global health once a month during our national zoom meeting! Despite the virtual nature of this fellowship, our fellows have tangible, real-world impact on the Congressional appropriations process that translates into lifesaving outcomes in the most vulnerable parts of the world.
