Fellowships and Internships

Los Angeles & Orange County


Summer Fellows

The Ziegler Young Religious Leaders Organizing Fellowship develops and supports the next generation of faith-rooted organizers. Students and recent graduates of universities and seminaries learn our model of Faith-Rooted Organizing to eliminate the suffering of the working poor and their families, as well as to ensure a strong middle class. The program consists of intensive organizing training and a full-time internship working on a specific economic justice campaign. They learn to educate, organize and mobilize the faith community to support specific sectors of the workforce and to push for better public policies that advance economic justice. As part of a diverse interfaith cohort, fellows also engage in weekly faith reflection in order to fully integrate their spiritual development and their growth as organizers.

Students and recent graduates of numerous colleges and seminaries are drawn to the Ziegler Young Religious Leaders Fellowship. There is clearly a hunger on the part of these burgeoning leaders to learn the unique skills of faith rooted organizing. CLUE remains the only organization in Los Angeles that provides such training. Through the Ziegler Young Religious Leaders Fellowship, CLUE makes a long-lasting contribution to building a strong movement for social and economic justice that lifts up the invaluable voices and gifts of people of faith. We are thankful to Ms. Ruth Ziegler, who has provided significant funding for the program.

Student interns from universities and gap year programs make up a vital part of our CLUE team. Interns receive real-world experience and real responsibility. CLUE works with the needs and capacities of individual interns to place them in a mentorship with our permanent staff.  You can meet our 2016/2017 interns here
