Young Religious Leaders Organizing Fellowship

The 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 ensure a strong middle class and accompany the suffering of the working poor and their families.

The program consists of intensive organizing training and a full-time internship working on a an economic justice campaign, frequently with organized labor partners. Fellows learn to educate, organize and mobilize faith community members to support workers and push for better, fairer economic public policies. As part of a diverse interfaith cohort, fellows also spend time in weekly reflection to integrate their spiritual development with their growth as organizers.

The students and recent graduates of colleges and seminaries who are drawn to the Young Religious Leaders Fellowship reflect the growing hunger to learn the unique skills of faith rooted organizing. CLUE is the only organization in Southern California that provides such training. The Young Religious Leaders Fellowship is CLUE's long-lasting contribution to building a just and sacred society. At the same time, the fellowship lifts up the valuable voices and gifts of young people of faith. We are thankful to Ms. Ruth Ziegler, who has provided significant funding for the program.

This year's deadline to submit applications is April 7, 2018. Fellowship awardees will be announced May 1, 2018.

Semester Interns

Student interns from universities and gap year programs make up a vital part of our CLUE team. Interns participate in semester-long experiences and receive real-world experience and real responsibility. CLUE works with the needs and capacities of each student and places them with staffers who become their mentors.
