Applications for Spring 2019 Ignite NC Fellows Now Open


This program invests in emerging young leaders by building their skills and analysis through ongoing trainings, coaching, and developing a state-wide cohort committed to building the youth & student movement. By increasing the capacity of young people to organize in their own name on issues that impact them, we will build and coordinate with other youth and students across the state. This program is designed to bring capacity to existing organizations, incubate new projects, and foster collaborations.

The fellowship program will:

  • Provide capacity to youth-led campaigns and initiatives through semester long
  • Three-day intensive training and semester long organizing coaching
  • Build campus infrastructure and statewide networks of young people
  • Enhance contact lists to build strong periphery to be used for integrated voter engagement around local issue
  • Provide a stipend  to all fellows who complete the program
