Please note: the program has been moved back by five months and will now commence in July 2020, not February. You can express interest via the form at the bottom of this page and we will be in touch once applications open in May 2020.
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, marketing 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 develop and 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, marketing and communications in a not-for-profit setting. Topics covered in the retreat and weekly seminars will include (but will not be limited to):
- Communicating to inspire action and social change
Crowdfunding and peer-to-peer fundraising
- Volunteer recruitment and support
Digital storytelling and campaigning
Personal Narrative Training
- Narrative and storytelling
Working and breaking into the not-for-profit sector
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

Our weekly training sessions will be held in Melbourne CBD. The retreat will take place at a location within driving distance from Melbourne. Our event locations are TBC, however they will all take place in Melbourne.
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.

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 Fellowship via the registration form below.
Official applications will open in May 2020 - 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
