Do you know any high school seniors or college students who like traveling the world, mingling with changemakers and hanging out with Jane Goodall? Be sure to tell them that Roots and Shoots (a project of the Jane Goodall Institute) is seeking applicants for its 2008-09 Youth Leadership Fellow. High school seniors and college students are eligible to apply for this one-year position, which is based in Arlington, Virginia and begins August 1, 2008. The Fellow receives a monthly stipend of $1,400.
According to Roots and Shoots, “The fellowship is a truly unique opportunity, which gives the recipient a perspective that most young people will never have. It is a chance for a young person to work full-time for an international nonprofit and travel around the country speaking to and meeting people—young and old—who are making a difference. Most importantly, the Fellow is given the opportunity, skills and support to lead their Roots & Shoots peers in making an impact, globally.”
The application deadline is April 31, 2008.
