Looking for a new challenge? Detroit Revitalization Fellows is seeking applicants NOW

Mid-career professionals looking to make a big impact in the future of Detroit, listen up.

The Detroit Revitalization Fellows is accepting applications for its 2017-19 fellowship, but you’ve got to get your materials in soon.

“Being a Detroit Revitalization Fellow is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play a role in the transformation of a great American city,” Asandi Conner, director of Detroit Revitalization Fellows, says in a news release. “These are meaningful positions for emerging leaders ready to drive progress while building a strong network, learning firsthand about urban challenges and opportunities, and working side-by-side with Detroiters who are deeply invested in our city’s future.”

Per the fellowship’s guidelines, Detroit Revitalization Fellows matches talented mid-career leaders with civic, community and economic development organizations working at the forefront of Detroit’s revitalization efforts. The program strengthens the city’s talent pool while building the capacity of key organizations driving progress in the city. Fellows serve full time for two years in salaried positions while engaging in rigorous leadership development, which includes monthly workshops, study trips and “Detroit Dialogues” with community leaders around key issues.

About 20 fellows will be selected. “If you care about Detroit and you’re dedicated to seeing a Detroit that is providing opportunities for everyone who is here, in addition to the people that want to be here, this is really an unparalleled opportunity for having an impact,” adds Aaron Goodman, a 2015-17 Fellow serving as community engagement manager at Community Development Advocates of Detroit.
