Bill Emerson National Hunger Fellowship
January

http://www.hungercenter.org/fellowships/emerson/

The Bill Emerson National Hunger Fellowship, a project of the Congressional Hunger Center, is a unique leadership development opportunity for motivated individuals seeking to make a difference in the struggle to eliminate hunger and poverty. Each year 20 participants are selected for this eleven-month program. Fellows are placed for half their term of service with urban and rural community-based organizations all over the country involved in fighting hunger at the local level, such as grass roots organizing groups, food banks, economic development agencies, local advocacy groups and faith-based organizations. They then move to Washington, DC to complete the year with national organizations involved in the anti-hunger and poverty movement, including national advocacy organizations, think tanks, and federal agencies. Through this unique program, the Bill Emerson National Hunger Fellows Program develops effective leaders with a deep understanding of hunger and poverty at both the local and national level that enables them to find innovative solutions and create the political will to end hunger.

The Young People For fellowship is a leadership development program focusing on identifying, engaging and empowering young progressive leaders. The one-year fellowship equips college students with the skills and resources necessary to create lasting change on their campuses and in their communities.

The fellowship is your chance to join a vibrant network of young progressive leaders! Young People For will select 200 students from across the country to take part in our 2009 fellowship program. Fellows will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. from February 12-16, 2009, to attend YP4's National Summit for Young Progressive Leaders.

At the Summit, you'll meet other young progressive leaders from all over the country and learn powerful strategies and tactics for creating sustainable social change.

Throughout the fellowship, you'll be offered financial support, technical support, and media assistance while implementing a self-designed Blueprint for Social Justice. In addition to support for your Blueprint, you will also receive help with internship placements, job opportunities, travel opportunities, and networking opportunities to add to your ability to make an impact as a young leader.
