About the Get Covered America Spring Fellows Program
Spring Fellows for Get Covered America will work closely with staff at our state offices and are an integral part of our success as an organization. The core of our work takes place in several target states, organizing communities and going door-to-door to get uninsured Americans up to speed on the opportunities made possible by the Affordable Care Act. At our DC Headquarters, various departments focus on facilitating and serving on-the-ground work in the states.
Fellow responsibilities will vary, but may include: canvassing neighborhoods, recruiting and training local volunteers, writing and editing materials for distribution to partner groups or volunteers, supporting state staff, compiling coverage of Get Covered America, and general administrative tasks. This is an unpaid position.
