About the Fellowship
Summer Fellows for Get Covered America will work closely with staff, volunteers, and partners to get uninsured Americans up to speed on the opportunity to enroll in affordable, quality health insurance made available by the Affordable Care Act. At our DC Headquarters, fellows will have a key role in facilitating on-the-ground work in the states.
All fellows will talk with consumers about the opportunity to enroll in new health coverage options made available by the Affordable Care Act, recruit and train volunteers, and collaborate with partners to get the word out about the new health coverage options. While all fellows will share core responsibilities, fellows will also have the opportunity to gain more advanced skills by participating one four program tracks:
Grassroots Organizing – fellows will communicate with consumers about their new health coverage options, recruit and train volunteers on how to communicate with consumers about their new health coverage options, and collaborate with partners to conduct outreach and in-reach. This is a great opportunity for candidates who are strong communicators, and passionate about expanding access to health coverage.
Data – fellows will help our team generate lists and reports to help guide outreach activities, maintain data cleanliness, provide data training for volunteers and new staff, etc. This is a great opportunity for candidates with a strong understanding of Excel or other Data management systems.
Communications & Digital Organizing – fellows will help develop each state’s social media presence; collect stories; draft and edit press releases, advisories, talking points and statements; etc. This is a great opportunity for candidates with strong writing skills, and experience using Twitter and other social media services.
Constituency Outreach and Partner Engagement – fellows will work with partners and key community institutions to do outreach to specific populations such as community college students, faith communities, small businesses, etc. Fellows will also regularly work with consumers and volunteers. This is a great opportunity for candidates who have strong ties to a particular community and an interest in working with diverse partners, volunteers, and consumers.
This is an unpaid position. Applications are requested by May 31. After May 31 applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Click here to apply.
