The CVSC Advocacy Fellows Program

The CVSC Advocacy Fellows program will ignite the next generation of conservation advocates by working with the chosen fellows as they take a central role in our grassroots campaigns to engage record numbers of conservation voters and drive them to take action. This is an unpaid fellowship, but we are happy to work with students so they can receive course credit. Advocacy fellows will organize events and provide general support to CVSC staff, conducting outreach and research in support of campaigns, and learn how to use online tools and platforms to organize, educate, and drive action. This program is ideal for students who want practical experience in political and issue-based campaigns, are interested in South Carolina politics and want to get more involved, want to network with like-minded conservationists across the state, and are passionate about clean energy and protecting South Carolina’s air, land, and water. We are seeking fellows who have proficiency in the Microsoft Office suite, Facebook, and Twitter, are self-starters capable of managing several tasks at once, and are available at least 10-15 hours a week. To apply, fill out the fellowship application and send your resume to Paul@cvsc.org with the subject line: “CVSC Advocacy Fellowship.”
