About the AIT Fellowship

The AIT Fellowship is a unique opportunity to grow your civic leadership in your community and on a national scale, while equipping and mobilizing others to be civically engaged. Fellows will directly support the implementation of the Community Leadership Program through community outreach, workshop facilitation, and volunteer coordination in their region. Fellows will receive civic leadership training and support from AIT staff  over the course of 2020. Ultimately, Fellows will equip thousands of women across the country with the necessary civic education and encouragement to take action on the issues that matter most to them.

Fellows will receive a program budget, as well as a $15,000 stipend. They are expected to work about 15 hours per week.

To apply, please email your resume and a 300-word or less cover letter addressing the below questions to jobs@aitogether.org.

  1. Please tell us what civic engagement means to you and how you would use your position as a Fellow to equip other women and create change in your community.
  2. Tell us about your track record of community leadership. How are you a leader in your community and what is your advocacy focus?

Fellowship applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Please allow 3-5 weeks for your application to be reviewed. Please email info@aitogether.org if you have any questions regarding the Fellowship.

Over the course of the Fellowship, Fellows will participate in a curriculum designed to grow their civic leadership.

This curriculum will include:

All Fellows will be required to attend Fellow Training Weekend in New York City, April 3-5, 2020. (All travel expenses will be covered for Fellows.)

About the Community Leadership Program

The Community Leadership Program is a national, nonpartisan program that aims to close the gender gaps that exist in civic leadership by equipping women across America with the necessary educational tools and peer support to become civic leaders in their communities and beyond. Recognizing that there are many styles of civic leadership, we define civic engagement as any action that allows individuals to access political power—from serving on a county board or commission, to speaking up at a town hall, or publishing an op-ed.
