Foothold Fellows are doers, multi-taskers, team-players, creatives and activators. They transform your collaborative’s to-do list and “what-ifs” into achievements and next steps. We are always accepting applications for Fellows – please submit an application. If we have an available Fellowship opportunity, we will notify you if we want to meet you.
Fellows benefit from a cohort of peers, professional development, mentorship and a growing network of connections in San Diego’s social sector.
Every day of the Fellowship is different. The program emphasizes innovation, relationship-building and a commitment to San Diego’s social sector. Fellows’ assignments will be to provide contracted support as granted capacity to one or more selected projects and tackle small scale, short-term projects and take collaboratives to the next step.
Fellows will work approximately 15-20 hours per week for a one year commitment. The first cohort of Fellows started in March 2016. Submit an application for our files!
To work with a Fellow, please email Jessica Kort.
The cohort framework adds many layers to Fellows’ experiences. Beyond their assignments with multiple collaboratives throughout their fellowship year, Fellows will expand their skills in expert- and peer-led learning sessions. They will create and follow individual career development plans.
The Fellowship will include a Giving Circle that will grant funds to collaborative efforts. More information coming soon.
