Fellowships

Energy Democracy Fellow (leadership training as you run a campaign at your local co-op) at We Own It (rural electric co-ops)

Fields: labor, sustainability, cooperatives, policy, campaigns

Location: Flexible

Deadline: July 1, 2018

Details and Requirements: Help electric co-op member-owners in the fight for integrity, transparency, clean energy, lower rates – and above all – restored democracy. Fellows are typically rural electric co-op member-owners (or people who work with them.) You may be new to co-ops or been worried about yours for years. You may be an experienced leader in your community or just beginning. This opportunity is ideal for people interested in gaining leadership experience, connecting with a growing network of grassroots organizers, implementing campaign tactics, and much more. The program is both technical training as well as leadership development that will have a lasting impact on your career. **Fellows will design and lead their own campaigns at their electric co-ops.** Campaigns may be for beneficial programs or specific policy changes at your co-op, supporting new candidates for board election, or reform/anti-corruption campaigns, depending on the local needs. Our focus is on developing Fellows’ leadership and supporting them in developing other leaders in their community. Fellows attend a hands-on, in-person training workshop Sep 7-9. We’ll not only pay the costs for your travel, materials, lodging, and meals during this training, we’ll pay you a $1,000 monthly stipend. This same program has been part of democratic change campaigns in the US and 60+ countries around the world.
