Pending grant approval, the Fellow will work four days a week at a community placement site that meets their interests and is chosen in consultation with the PSC Director. The Fellow will work one day a week at the PSC where they will participate in or lead trainings and group reflections with PSC students. The Fellow may also participate in web conferences with other Shinnyo Fellows and their supervisors.
They will meet regularly with the PSC Director for supervisory meetings and three coaching sessions. They will also attend at least one relevant conference (in the field of service learning or peace building) to support their professional development and expand their knowledge and network. In addition, the Fellow will attend the annual Shinnyo retreat.
They will be expected to maintain a service journal (video, audio, written) and to complete a final project documenting their service journey during the Fellowship. This project may be a video, a paper, or a presentation that shares learnings that could be relevant to others in the peacebuilding movement.
Fellows will receive $30,000 for their 10-month service placement and health insurance.
