Fellowship

Fall 1-Month Campaign Fellowships

Come join a competitive City Council campaign to elect a Democrat on the Upper East Side. Well-qualified students with a passion for civic engagement and local politics are welcome to apply to our Fall Campaign Fellowship. 

Ben Kallos has been an Attorney, chief of staff in the Assembly and Executive Director of a good government reform group. He is the Democratic nominee for City Council in the Upper East Side and Roosevelt Island has been working to promote accountable good government and progressive principles. Ben is a proud feminist with the endorsements of NARAL Pro-Choice NY and Planned Parenthood of NYC. 

This will be an exciting, intensive one-month fellowship in advance of Election Day on November 5 and for a short period thereafter.

Please select one of the following options: 

 

Organizing Fellowship

 

Organizing Fellows will work closely with our Field Director to plan and execute an outreach program, manage a large team of enthusiastic volunteers from the community and coordinate with community groups. 

 

Communications Fellowship

 

Communications fellows will work with the Comms team to plan and execute effective messaging and digital strategy. You’ll gain experience drafting copy, creating media lists and building a social media presence. 

 

Finance Fellowship

Help the treasurer in fundraising and compliance, gaining firsthand experience with contracts and even working with the city’s public matching system. 

 

Campaign Fellows should be deeply committed to electing a Progressive to the City Council and have passion for creating positive change in their neighborhoods. You will be treated as a member of the core team, but expected to split your time between the field needs of the campaign and your fellowship responsibilities. 

 

The fellowship is unpaid and applicants should attempt to secure academic credit.

Fellows must commit to working at least ten hours a week.

 

Positions are open immediately and applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Please send a resume and cover letter to digbyatkallosforcouncil [dot] com with the name of the fellowship you are applying for in the subject line.
