We all want to make a difference, but too many fellowships focus entirely on research and require students to get lost in the library. If you want to make a real difference in your community, consider a fellowship with the Constituency Department of Georgia Victory 2014—The Democratic Coordinated Campaign supporting Michelle Nunn, Jason Carter, and Democrats up and down the ballot.
The fellowship will offer students a structured experience working directly with campaign staffers in the Constituency Department. Fellows learn basic skills that allow them to analyze issues and articulate solutions to the pressing problems of the day. Fellows learn that activism and participation in the democratic process yield results. Though responsibilities vary, most fellowships will include:
- Working with candidates, staffers and community organizations to increase visibility and name identification throughout Georgia by coordinating community events and candidate appearances.
- Working with coalition partners and constituency groups to coordinate grassroots campaign activities, including phonebanks, canvasses, and event appearances.
Fellows have the opportunity to work on a campaign where they learn about
public policy issues, gain political knowledge, and see how the democratic process
Opportunities for community service hours and school credit are available.
