Far too often, talented, hardworking young people who are directly impacted by the issues we fight for are funneled away from following their passions because they must prioritize paid work over unpaid internships. They miss out on the experience, mentorship, and relationships that come with working with institutions like the ACLU. These are experiences that change young people's lives. And that, in turn, can change our society.
With that in mind, the ACLU-WV is launching our Equity and Justice Fellowship.
The Equity and Justice Fellowship is open to undergraduate students, graduate students, law students, and nontraditional students or citizen activists who identify as being in a historically marginalized community that is underrepresented in West Virginia advocacy and policy-making spaces.
Depending on fellows' areas of study and career goals, fellows can work with ACLU-WV staff on legal advocacy, policy advocacy, research, communications, community education, organizing, development, or nonprofit management matters.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. There is no deadline to apply.
