Philly Fellows seeks new host agencies

Philly Fellows is now seeking new host agencies for its 2015-2016 fellowships. Interested nonprofits must submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) outlining their potential projects to Philly Fellows staff by Friday, October 24th.

Fellows serve in full-time capacity-building positions in dynamic Philadelphia nonprofits. By hosting a fellow, partner agencies are able to launch new programs and initiatives that enable them to do more to carry out their missions. In addition to strengthening host agencies and the communities they serve, the program helps to cultivate the next generation of civic leaders.

Fellows are selected from a highly competitive pool of graduating college seniors, each of whom comes into the fellowship with significant service and leadership experience. For 2014-2015, Philly Fellows received 120 applications for 15 fellowship slots. Thanks to this competitiveness, candidates who are selected for the fellowship have outstanding academic records, excellent communication skills, significant service and leadership experience, and the ability to make an immediate impact at their host agencies.

The program partners with AmeriCorps*VISTA to support these projects.
