Frequenters of the ENGAGE Blog and the OCS Lounge (Allbritton 318 – Come say hello!) are likely familiar with me, the Civic Engagement Fellow, and Shannon Nelson ’14, the Center for Prison Education Fellow. Our respective tenures at Wesleyan will come to a close this summer, and the Center for Community Partnerships is now seeking the next set of Fellows.
These one-year positions are open to anyone, although Wesleyan alumni are strongly preferred. Read the descriptions below, follow the links for information and applications, and contact us (scapron@wes and senelson@wes) with any questions. The review of applications will begin on April 1, 2015. We look forward to hearing from you!
