Young Religious Leaders Fellowship Summer 2024

2024 Young Religious Leaders Summer Organizing Fellowship is Now Accepting Applications!

Young people of every faith are invited to apply for CLUE’s Young Religious Leaders Fellowship – a paid internship opportunity that runs for 8 weeks from mid-June to early August.

For over fifteen years, Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice has introduced young activists to the world of faith-rooted community organizing and to the labor movement through its annual paid summer internship program.

The stipend this summer is $7,200. For ten weeks from June 3 to August 9, fellows will undergo intensive training in CLUE’s method of faith-rooted organizing and will work on active social justice campaigns alongside an experienced Faith-Rooted Organizer.

Please note this organizing fellowship is not a 9am – 5pm internship, so a flexible schedule is preferred.

Minimum requirements:

  • Open to anyone 18-40
  • Open to folks with any level of religious or faith tradition, as well as for folks who identify as spiritual, secular, or who haven’t yet found a safe spiritual home but whose hearts yearn for justice.
  • Full-time paid internship with flexible weekends but with occasional actions happening outside of that.
  • Must be available to participate in-person and virtually in campaigns based in Los Angeles County or Orange County.
  • A driver’s license and access to a vehicle are desired but not required in all cases.
