OCV Summer Fellowship Program 2019 is available at OCV, a trailblazing digital media organization dedicated to humanizing the climate disaster through storytelling, centering the voices of frontline communities and those most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Moreover, it has been connecting people with ways to support climate solution-making work that impacted communities are already doing.
The OCV fellowships are a unique opportunity for you to join the team. The OCV team members are innovative and passionate young people who believe in the power of youth organizing. Also, the fellowship will allow you to fully immerse in OCV’s storytelling mission, work with and have a mentor of one of the core team members, and give you a chance to develop your arts activism and storytelling portfolio. The fellowships are unpaid at this time, but it can offer up to $50 in work-related reimbursements each month to ensure that you can cover the costs associated with the fellowship. It will also work with schools to provide academic credit, if necessary. Fellows will work remotely, and need to contribute 10-15 hours a week.
