Encore!Hartford Fellowship Host Site Application

  • Host Period: July 16 - September 21, 2018

The cornerstone of Encore!Hartford is a two-month fellowship, from July 16 – September 21, 2018 at a Hartford area nonprofit. Encore!Hartford 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!Hartford 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 work space 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.
