The Junior Fellowship program is a four month placement working in one of EWB’s many ventures.
The 18 month Junior Fellowship (JF) Program is an opportunity directly investing in, not just ideas, but the leading change makers of tomorrow. The JF program is one way to continue our record of meaningful and sustainable, systemic change while promoting learning through sharing and development. The program is built to better define some of society’s most deeply rooted issues, and the solutions to these problems.
The structure of the Fellowship is as follows: six months of preparation in an immersive learning environment, four months of individually leading change with one of EWB’s Ventures, and then eight months continuing the Fellows projects and leadership in Canada. The Fellow will have the opportunity to tap into EWB’s national network of young social innovators. Along with the roles associated with the JF position, the Fellow will also attend National Conference all the while continuing to be a contributing member in the chapter.
Prior to the placement, the volunteer is expected to prepare by reviewing all necessary materials, attending national conference, and participating in pre-departure trainings, all the while continuing to be a contributing member in the chapter. After the four month placement, the returning Junior Fellow will be required to fulfill the remainder of the program’s objective by staying with the chapter for at least one more year to share valuable learning with the community and mentor the future Junior Fellow.
