Academy Fellowships

The Greenlining Institute is seeking candidates for its Academy Fellowships
in Public Policy and Economic Development, which are full time, one year 
positions.  

The Academy Fellowship is a leadership training program for recent graduate 
students who are pursuing careers in the field of public policy, community 
development and minority advocacy.  Fellows enhance their writing and 
research skills, and gain ample experience in policy analysis, public 
speaking, community organizing, lobbying, facilitating meetings, 
media/public relations, board relations, fundraising, budgeting and 
organizational planning. Currently there are two fellowship openings in the 
following program areas:

Brownfields.  This community education and advocacy project aims to develop 
major corporate and community support for statewide brownfields redevelopment.  
Brownfields are abandoned or underused sites where redevelopment is complicated 
by real or perceived environmental contamination.  Responsibilities of the 
Brownfields Fellow include collaborating with other community organizations, 
government entities and corporations to educate community leaders about 
brownfields; working with representatives of financial institutions to increase 
capital for brownfields projects; and monitor the federal and state legislature 
for any brownfields-related bills in order to assess their effects on 
low-income and minority communities.

Banking Implementation. Since 1991, Greenlining has reached CRA agreements  
with most all of the major California banks and savings and loans that 
together will provide over $200 billion for home and small business lending
and investment in inner-cities. The Implementation Fellowship was designed to increase the accountability and responsibility of the banks to low income and minority communities in which they do business. The Banking Implementation Fellow will work with the Policy Director to negotiate and secure CRA agreements from the banking industry, monitor progress, and expand CRA into areas of employee diversity, minority procurement, and technical assistance to low income, minority communities. 

The ideal candidate for these positions must possess: 
 Strong public speaking skills
 Ability to work in a multi-task oriented environment
 Professional poise, maturity and confidence
 Excellent writing and communication skills
 Ability to work with a team and independently
 Demonstrated commitment to low income minority communities 
 A strong interest in economic development for low income minority communities. 

Qualifications.  Candidates must have a BA or BS in a related field or be
Masters candidates or recent graduates in public policy, urban planning, or 
a related field program. Ideal candidates have solid experience working 
with minority community groups, are familiar with public policy or 
community development issues, have excellent communication and research 
skills, are flexible, independent and team-minded.  

Stipend:  Fellows receive a monthly stipend of $2000/month, before taxes, 
plus a small health benefits stipend.

Application instructions:  Send cover letter, resume, two letters of 
recommendation, and a one page statement explaining your career goals and 
what you hope to gain from the Greenlining Academy Fellowship. Please 
specify in your cover letter when you are available to start, and which
