APPLY FOR A PEACE FELLOWSHIP WITH THE ADVOCACY PROJECT THIS SUMMER

Interested in working on the front lines for human rights? If so, this is the fellowship for you!

The Advocacy Project (AP) is recruiting 22 graduate students to volunteer as Peace Fellows this summer with community-based advocates in 14 countries. AP supports marginalized communities around the world, and we rely heavily on Peace Fellows for help. 210 Peace Fellows have served abroad with AP partner organizations since 2003.

Read their blogs - http://advocacynet.org/wordpress-mu/. Check out their feedback at http://www.advocacynet.org/page/Fellow%20Feedback%202011. See the kind of work they do by following Chantal Uwizera (American University) during her 2011 fellowship in Nepal. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olY1TX84yHk&feature=relmfu

During their 3-month deployment, Fellows help their host to produce information through blogs, video, photos, newsletters, and a partner page on the AP website; disseminate information by training an “accidental techie” in IT skills and developing IT tools (websites, social networking); and build an international network of supporters (through blogs, and outreach activities on return).

In addition, all 2012 Fellows will take on at least one major activity, with a clear goal and outcome, that supports their host’s advocacy. Several Fellows will also help their hosts produce an advocacy quilt. All fellowships are unpaid.

The application deadline is March 15th, 2012. For details on the available positions, and on how to apply, please visit (http://advocacynet.org/page/2012fellowships). For further inquiries email Program Manager, Karin Orr, (fellowships(AT)advocacynet.org) or call 202-758 3328.
