So you worked at a church camp?
Tuesday, January 20th at 7:30 p.m., Evald Great Hall
Was church camp an important part of your life? Join students, faculty, staff, and community members as we gather to remember the fun of summer camp and consider how those experiences impact our lives today. The fun will include s'mores, camp songs, camp games, camp fires, and good conversation. Also, if you really loved and valued your church camp experiences, consider encouraging your students to have similar ones! The Camp Fair will be held Wednesday, January 28 from 10:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. in the College Center. Students can connect with and learn about summer opportunities at camps across the country!
The Bill Emerson National Hunger Fellowship
DEADLINE: JANUARY 22, 2009
Each year, up to twenty-four participants are selected from around the country for this eleven-month program. They assemble in Washington, D.C. in September for a comprehensive ten-day orientation and training, where they explore the reality of hunger and poverty in the U.S. and the various approaches to social and systemic change.
Fellows are placed for five months with urban and rural community-based organizations involved in fighting hunger at the local level, such as grassroots organizing groups, food banks, local advocacy groups, economic development agencies, and faith-based organizations. Each host organization identifies specific goals and outcomes for the Fellows and provides the supervision and resources necessary to accomplish them.
In mid-February, the Fellows regroup in Washington, D.C. to process and evaluate their field experiences and participate in extensive policy training to learn about national anti-hunger and anti-poverty policy work.
BENEFITS: $14,500 annual living allowance, health insurance, travel expenses, housing during field placement, $3,500 end-of-service award, $3,500 housing stipend in D.C., relocation stipend, connection to an extensive community of Hunger Fellows and network of alumni, partners, and experts, experience with community and policy leaders, training/mentoring/leadership development, experience in project management.
