Organizing Fellow

Overview

The Organizing Fellowship is an opportunity for exceptional activists to become more deeply engaged in advocating for access to comprehensive health care. Fellows lead local organizing efforts by working closely with PPAWI staff and engaging in campaigns focused on these issues in their communities. PPAWI will provide the support and training needed for fellows to emerge as leaders in the women’s health care movement.

Organizing fellows receive specialized training from PPAWI and collaborate with organizations in their communities. The Organizing Fellowship emphasizes relationship building around reproductive health issues both on and off campus. Fellows learn effective organizing and advocacy tactics surrounding reproductive health and are responsible for planning and organizing events to advocate for and educate their communities about social justice and reproductive health care. 

Planned Parenthood fellowships are available throughout the year. Fellows are paid and must commit to at least one year. College credit can alternatively be arranged. Fellowships are a minimum of 12-15 hours per week. Current students, recent graduates, and community members are welcome to apply. Fellows can focus on high-level community or campus organizing. Please see Organizing Intern for potential projects.
