Become a Civic Leadership Fellow
DCTMI is looking for students (undergraduate or graduate) and community members wanting to have a positive impact on the Washington, DC, education landscape and help create a national model for civic transformation. The Civic Leadership Fellows program is a paid, year-long opportunity to develop your leadership skills, gain tangible community organizing experience through face-to-face outreach, and grow in your ability to be a centered, self-aware, kind, and courageous human being and leader.
Want real world experience? Look no further!
Becoming a DCTMI intern is an excellent way to take on projects that support your career goals and your interests. Our goal is to prepare you to be the thoughtful, courageous, and dynamic mission-driven professionals and change agents that the world needs today.
Interns are expected to participate in two meetings a week: one civic leadership meeting and one tactical/operational meeting at the beginning of each week. The weekly 90-minute civic leadership meetings are held on a weekday evening and include time for reflection/meditation, a presentation by team leaders or Fellows, or a thought-provoking reading or video followed by a discussion. Topics range from how to center ourselves and manage anxiety to the state of DC education or U.S. democracy.
All Fellows and Interns are expected to help with community outreach as well as taking on special projects, which you develop with the guidance of our professional staff.
We expect 10-20 hours during the academic year and 30-40 hours over the summer. These internships are paid at a competitive hourly rate.
If 1 out of 10 employees in DC helped out 2 hours a week, every student in a traditional or charter school that needed extra help could receive it. Find out the many ways your organization can help DC-area young people and improve organizational culture and community involvement
