Community Engagement Fellowship

July 6, 2016 @ 8:00 am - November 18, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

Every year, United Way of the Greater Triangle invests in the leadership development of a cohort of five to six talented leaders and provides them with learning opportunities to sharpen their business acumen through the Community Engagement Fellowship. Fellows receive ongoing, top-notch training from area nonprofit and corporate leaders, and will have many opportunities to put their skills to use. Fellows have meaningful responsibilities, including clearly communicating the importance of giving and volunteering with United Way to the employees at their assigned companies. Fellows will also have unique opportunities to connect and build relationships with a network of over 500 area nonprofit organizations and businesses. The skill set acquired through this fellowship are transferable to any field and will be an asset in many settings. If you have ever wondered what it’s like to work for a nonprofit, are committed to being a catalyst for positive change in our community, are eager to learn how to do accounts and project management, and have been described as an outgoing individual, then this may be the right opportunity for you.


The fellowship is held at United Way of the Greater Triangle’s office in Morrisville, NC. As a fellow you will have the opportunity to travel and build relationships across the four county region we serve: Durham, Johnston, Orange, and Wake counties. For 2016 we will only be selecting 5 fellows.  Fellows must be available and participate in the mandatory trainings, July 6-8, and July 11-12. The fellowship requires a 37.5 hour Monday-Friday workweek. The 2016 Fellowship starts July 6 and ends November 18, 2016.  Fellows are expected to complete their entire term.  Fellows receive $12/hour during this fellowship.
