The Associate Program at NETWORK Lobby, A National Catholic Social Justice Lobby just opened applications for their 2016-2017 Associate Program year and are seeking a diverse cadre of applicants who are graduating or have recently graduated from college and are seeking to gain experience working for structural change through legislative advocacy and social justice.
NETWORK offers an 11-month (Fall 2016-Summer 2017) stipended, intensive educational and professional development experience in Washington, D.C. focused on legislative advocacy rooted in Catholic principles of social justice. I think of the Associate Program as an alternative post-grad opportunity for students who wish to work for social justice through structural change at the political and organizing level.
Designed to cultivate growth into a career in advocacy, politics, policy, or non-profit arena through firsthand experience, associates will develop practical, translatable skills as they contribute to the ongoing work for social justice.
Applications for the 2016-2017 Associate Program will be accepted through January 31, 2016. You can find out more information about the program and apply here:
