Community Outreach Fellows Program

Fellows serve as coordinators for community volunteer programs. As part of a team of students who have considerable civic engagement experience and leadership potential, Community Outreach Fellows help their fellow students find desired opportunities for co-curricular volunteer work in a wide range of areas.

Each Fellow serves as a campus liaison to a local non-profit organization and works to educate the campus community about that organization and to recruit, train, and manage Bates volunteers for engagement with the agency. Community Outreach Fellows also participate in monthly reflection and skill-building workshops and several retreats designed to develop their civic leadership capacities.

Fellows are paid $2000 for their work over the course of both fall and winter semesters. They work an average of eight hours per week. Interested students may click here to download an application. They are also welcome to contact Marty Deschaines (mdeschai@bates.du) at 207-786-8273 for more information.

Deadline: March 6, 2017
