The Carolina Migrant Network is accepting applications for our Monarca Fellowship program. This fellowship is a new initiative we are launching in 2023 that is designed to help folks new to organizing and activism develop the skills and strategies that will allow them to build collective campaigns and contribute to existing organizing efforts in the state of North Carolina (and Charlotte!). This fellowship is open to all, and is particularly intended for those who have little to no organizing experience.  

The Monarca Fellowship is more than just a training program—our goal is to create a community of like-minded young people that will build deep relationships with each other to face the challenges ahead. If you want to expand your knowledge on popular political education, join a fellowship that shares passion for their community, bolster your career, and/or become a leader on issues that matter to you, the Monarca Fellowship is for you. 

Applications for the fellowship are due Wednesday, September 20th at 11:59 PM ET.

We will be working with approximately five young people from the CLT area in order to develop their skills as organizers and ultimately develop a campaign plan to work as the advocacy wing of the Carolina Migrant Network. The selected young people will participate in a six-month academy with biweekly sessions where they will learn about organizing history, base-building and organizing methodologies, and develop and execute a campaign during the 2024 Spring GOTV season.

All sessions take place on Wednesdays from 5:30pm to 8:30pm ET in-person (we may switch to Zoom if there are public health concerns at any given point). Fellows will be compensated a total of $1,200.00 for their participation in the fellowship.
