    2020 Fellowship

       

    Build your capacity, challenge yourself and create positive change

    Our 2020 Fundraising and Communications Fellowship is an exciting opportunity for up to 25 people with passion, drive and initiative to develop skills and experience valuable to the not-for-profit and climate sectors, while making a tangible difference to Climate for Change and the work that we do.

    "It's honestly been one of the most life-changing experiences I've had. I'm just so inspired by how much of a difference we can actually make." - Cait Coffey-Wong, 2017 Fellow

    Sounds exciting? Express your interest below!

    We will be in touch once applications open in November 2019. 

     

    About the fellowship

    Following the huge success of our 2019 Fellowship program, we are back bigger and better, looking for a new group of up to 25 committed volunteers to join us in 2020. 

    This Fellowship has been designed to give those interested in working in the not-for-profit, advocacy and climate sectors a range of skills and experience foundational to all these sectors, mainly focussing on fundraising, community organising and communications.

    Over four months you will attend weekly seminars with a select and passionate group of volunteers to learn from experts in their field. Over that period, you will also work together to design then implement an ambitious real-life crowd fundraiser in a fun and supportive environment.

    This is a great opportunity for someone wanting first-hand experience in the not-for-profit sector, while gaining fundamental skills needed for fundraising, communications and community organising. 

     

    Knowledge and skills

    The Fellowship curriculum has been designed to expose our Fellows to almost all aspects of fundraising, community organising and communications in a not-for-profit setting. Topics covered in the retreat and weekly seminars will include (but will not be limited to):

    • Fundraising strategy 

    • Communicating to inspire action and social change
    • Crowdfunding and peer-to-peer fundraising

    • Project management

    • Volunteer recruitment and support
    • Digital storytelling and campaigning

    • Personal Narrative Training

    • Pitching

    What's in it for you?

    "Participating in this year's Fellowship was truly an unbeatable experience; the array of skills I've gained from it (fundraising, communication, teamwork, project management, etc!) have been invaluable. I now feel way more empowered to advocate for effective climate action. I wish I could do the entire thing again!" - Daniela Spilkin, 2018 Fellow

    Cost

    Worth thousands of dollars, the training in this Fellowship is offered free of charge as participants will help fundraise for Climate for Change as part of their project work. Participants will need to cover the costs of the retreat (accommodation, food and transport). These costs are yet to be finalised, but we aim to keep them as low as possible (around $500 for three days). Some full and partial scholarships will be made available to applicants based on need.

    Please express your interest in taking part in the Program below.

    Official applications will open in November 2019 - we will notify you as soon as we're ready to accept applications. 

    “I would say to any future fellows, just go for it! There are so many vital general skills and also transferable skills that you will learn, and the feeling you get when you know you are making a positive change is the most valuable thing of all.” Alice Anderson, 2018 Fellow
