Young people of every faith are invited to apply for CLUE’s Young Religious Leaders Fellowship – a paid internship opportunity that runs 8 weeks from mid-June to early August.
As members of YRLF, college, seminary students and graduates learn about and practice faith-rooted organizing: a model of social transformation centered on faith that promotes government policies to protect the vulnerable and lift workers and their families into the middle class.
Fellows undergo intensive training in faith-rooted organizing and will work on an active social justice campaign under an experienced faith-rooted organizer. Fellows also enjoy rigorous spiritual development.
The fellowship emphasizes: teamwork; deep training; shadowing; hands-on, practical work; developing strong relationships with local religious communities and work leaders; and a thirst to change the world. The internship is demanding, fun, dynamic, high energy, creative, exciting, and life changing.
- 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 or secular, or who haven’t yet found a safe spiritual home, but whose hearts yearn for justice.
- 24 hour per week paid internship, 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 (presuming Covid is not still a threat).
- Driver’s license and access to a vehicle desired, but not required in all cases.
