"Corporate water hunters are bottling up our most precious resource for profit, but an unstoppable wave of youth activism is growing to stop them. Our organizing fellows will lead the way in ensuring safe, clean, affordable water for everyone. Whether it's running press events, creating coalitions, or mobilizing volunteers, we've got a job that needs you to make it work." -- Annie Weinberg, Take Back the Tap Organizer with Food & Water Watch
We need dedicated and talented fellowship applicants. We provide grassroots advocacy training, a chance to work with an incredible team of leaders, and a blueprint for environmental victory. Can you imagine you or someone you know leading the way on one of the most important environmental and human rights issues of our time?
Food & Water Watch's Take Back the Tap Campaign is building upon a groundswell of activism to address the global water crisis. It's growing fast and it needs leaders like you!
The Take Back the Tap Campaign is hiring right now for Organizing Fellowships for our Summer Session, June 3 through August 15, and the Fall Session, September 1 through December 15. Fellows will come to Washington for an intensive training in media and messaging; volunteer recruitment and management; coalition-building; campaign strategy; and more. Then, they'll go make it all happen in cities and towns across the country.
What fellows will get is a blueprint for changing communities and awakening water consciousness on campuses and beyond. They will help to win real victories to address the global water crisis. Plus we've got $1,000 stipend and college credit is available. The deadline to apply for the summer session is May 15!
