Encore!Fairfield County

Encore!Fairfield County Fellowship Host Site Application

  • Host Period: Dec. 18, 2017 - Feb. 23, 2018

The cornerstone of Encore!Fairfield County is a two-month fellowship, from December 18, 2017 to February 23, 2018 at a Fairfield County nonprofit. Encore!Fairfield County Fellows will complete an essential project with a nonprofit within their field and position interest that meets the needs of the nonprofit.

The fellowship provides the nonprofit with a highly skilled professional to manage or develop a project for approximately 30 hours a week for two months, depending on the project. This opportunity provides the Encore!Fairfield County Fellow with practical field experience in the sector and a strengthening of his/her skill sets essential to be successful in his/her nonprofit career, and the nonprofit is provided with a highly skilled professional to assist in moving a key project forward.

The Fellow will report to a member of your staff and be provided with a workspace and technology tools, as available, needed to work on the assignment. We will work with you and your organization’s designated fellowship supervisor every step of the way to ensure a positive, productive experience from the initial fellow-to-organization match to the end of the assigned two-month project.

Please note: Fellows will not be assigned to your organization. You will have the opportunity to interview them and determine whether they are a good fit for the project you have described.
