A Chance to Build Skills and Help Texas Get Ahead
April 23, 2014
Are you someone who hopes to make a difference? Like to learn and grow as a leader, while spending time with a group of passionate, talented people who can help you learn some new skills? Then we have the perfect opportunity: become a summer fellow for Get Covered America. When you do, you’ll be gaining valuable work experience and joining the state’s leading movement to help Texans’ leading healthier, more financially secure lives.
Our fellowship program is a structured, elite learning and volunteerism program that’s part of the national Get Covered America Campaign. Fellows get a chance to help on the ground here in Texas, working with seasoned staff to build their skills here in the state with the highest rate of uninsured and, thus, the greatest need for good people like you! At the same time, you’ll be benefiting from a national network that offers a series of top-notch weekly trainings, progressive skill-building, opportunities to lead and master a project on your own, and access to a learning community of peers across the country.
We have two fellowship tracks in Texas:
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,work with data, and collaborate with partners to conduct outreach and in-reach. This is a great opportunity for candidates who are interested in developing management skills and gaining real world experience in running campaigns. Candidates who are strong communicators and passionate about expanding access to health coverage; who have ties to a particular community and an interest in working with diverse partners, volunteers, and/or consumers; and/or who have a strong understanding of data management are a great fit for the fellows program.
Communications & Digital Organizing Fellows will help develop the Texas team’s social media presence; collect stories; draft and edit press releases, advisories, talking points, blog posts, and statements; and work with reporters. This is a great opportunity for candidates with strong writing skills and experience using Twitter and other social media.
