Dear Liz Marshall,
The future needs an advocate. That's why FCNL is thrilled to announce new, expanded opportunities for young adults to advocate with us. Get all the details about these positions at
Feel free to share this silly video we created, to the tune of Pharrell's "Happy," to spread the word about new ways for young adults to get involved with FCNL.
We now have open applications for three programs that are part of a year-long experience for students, recent grads and others at the beginning of their careers:
  • The Internship Program is now called the Young Fellows Program. Participants in the program become paid members of FCNL's staff in Washington, DC full-time for 11 months. Applications due February 16, 2015.
  • The brand-new Advocacy Corps offers a paid way for young people to organize in their own campuses and communities across the U.S. for action on a different issue each year. In 2015-2016, the focus will be on climate and social change. Applications due April 1, 2015.
  • The Summer Internship introduces young adults to public policy and nonprofits. Applications due March 1, 2015.
We also continue to grow and expand Spring Lobby Weekend, the signature lobby day for young adults that last year brought almost 200 student advocates to Washington, DC. This year's event focuses on climate change.
Want more information? I will be hosting an informational conference call with Tommy Wrenn, program assistant for young adult outreach, on December 3 at 6:30pm EST. We'll send a reminder email about the conference call with details -- mark your calendars now.
Kaeley Pruitt-Hamm
Advocacy Corps Coordinator
