From the Long Island Civic Engagement Table:
Big news: we’re hiring several fellows to help build the civic engagement infrastructure in Suffolk County and learn how to become community and electoral organizers.
The Long Island Civic Engagement Table (LICET) is thrilled to announce the Movement Building Fellowship Program, a five-month fellowship program for young people who are interested in exploring a career in community and electoral organizing and contributing to the participation of immigrants, African-Americans, and Latinos in the American democratic process.
Fellows will be placed to work in specific target areas for LICET’s 2012 campaign—i.e., areas with a high density of communities of color. Participants will receive training in the skills of community organizing, non-partisan voter registration and “Get-Out-The-Vote” (GOTV) efforts from the staff of LICET and its core organizations.
So, if you’re interested, please read the full fellowship description here and submit your application by the end of the week.
Also, one final reminder: we’ve had lots of interest for this Wednesday’s training on the rules for lobbying and how different types of non-profits and unions can work together. But we still have a few spots open. So, if you’re interested in joining, please click here and RSVP.
