Creative Fellowship

The Program 

The 50+1 Strategies Fellowship is a paid part-time professional development program designed to train and cultivate the next generation of campaign professionals, community organizers, and change advocates. During the 10-week program, fellows will be exposed to a wide range of consulting work and will be given the opportunity to participate in a variety of projects across the firm’s client roster. Fellows will be placed in a department that matches their field of interest where they will receive professional mentorship and gain hands-on experience. In addition to their particular specialization, Fellows will attend weekly seminars/training covering other aspects of campaign and issue advocacy work in order to enrich and complement their experience and support their holistic growth as political professionals.
