Applications Due 7.4 2019. Opportunities available for young people to humanize climate change through storytelling, centering the voices of frontline communities and those most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, and connecting people with ways to support climate solution-making work that impacted communities are already doing.
Fellows will work remotely, and are asked to contribute 10-15 hours a week. Fellowships are unpaid at this time, but up to USD $50 in work-related reimbursements each month will be available to ensure that costs related to each fellowship are covered. The program will also work with schools to provide academic credit, if desired.
Each Fellow will spearhead an OCV story from start to finish: identify a local climate justice leader in the community where they live, interview that climate justice leader, lead the editing process and publication on the OCV platform, and lead all social media and outreach for that story.
Note: Fellowships will not result in future employment. It offers an opportunity to receive training in and experience with storytelling, media, and communication techniques.
OCV is a largely volunteer organization led by and for LGBTQIA+ people, people on the front lines of climate change, indigenous people, people of color, people from low-income communities, and women in the climate movement.
