New Sector Alliance works across sectors to help established and emerging leaders tackle pressing challenges and advance their careers. Our mission is to accelerate social change by strengthening organizations and developing leaders. Through intensive fellowships, New Sector prepares highly talented young professionals for rewarding, mission-driven careers that change lives, organizations, and the world.
The Summer Fellowship program is an immersive 10-week program for undergraduate students and recent graduates. Fellows are selected from a highly competitive pool and matched with a Chicago area non-profit or social impact organization. Fellows work full-time, completing capacity-building projects that allow organizations to more effectively achieve their missions. Host site projects are designed to create, improve, or expand services and may focus on community outreach, program coordination, communications and marketing, data analysis, fundraising, or volunteer services among others. During the 10-week Fellowship, Summer Fellows also participate in New Sector's training and mentoring program.
All 2021 Summer Fellowship positions will be remote work positions and all training sessions will be conducted virtually. You will not need to relocate to Chicago, however if you are already located in Chicago, you can indicate on your application if you would be open to in-office or hybrid in-office/remote work if available. This is not a requirement for consideration.
