We’re Hiring! 2014-2015 Fellowships
Founded in September of 2011, Food Recovery Network (FRN) is the largest national student-led food recovery movement working to bring food recovery programs to colleges across the country. Made up of dozens of chapters at colleges and universities, FRN has recovered over 300,000 pounds of food and is rapidly expanding.
We are looking for 7 fellows to work full-time on the Member Support and Expansion teams at FRN HQ in College Park, Maryland. Fellowships start on August 11, 2014 and end May 15, 2015. Fellows receive a $1,500 per month stipend.
Please send only one application for your preferred fellowship role; please indicate if you wish to be considered for other roles.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis through May 15, 2014.
Member Support Fellowships (3)
There are three FRN Member Support fellowships for the 2014-2015 school year.
The mission of FRN Member Support is to provide resources and advice to official FRN chapters to expand their capacity and impact, and to increase visibility on campus, in their communities, and on a national level. FRN Member Support works to build strong connections among all chapters and an affiliation with FRN National via monthly video chats, regional summits and a yearly national conference.
Each fellow will perform the same basic duties, with an additional focus based on interest and expertise (Communications, Event Planning, Liaison for Student Initiatives). All fellows report to the Director of Member Support. Some work outside the Member Support department may be required at times.
Expansion Fellowships (4)
There are four FRN Expansion fellowships for the 2014-2015 school year.
The Expansion Team is composed of New Chapter Coordinators working under the Director of Expansion. New Chapter Coordinators work to start new Food Recovery Network programs on campuses throughout the country, mentoring students one-on-one to take them through the process of starting chapters and working to improve our processes, resources and outreach. Each Expansion Fellow will act as a New Chapter Coordinator with occasional work on other projects.
