We focus on leadership development to increase the number of citizen leaders prepared to work for positive social change.
MPA is committed to an internship and fellowship program that develops our organization and involves new people who are committed to social change and interested in learning a variety of skills in the work. The program is open to seniors in high school, community college students, students enrolled in 4- year colleges or graduate school, recent graduates and people interested in social justice careersAbout the programs:
The internship and fellowship program starts with participants going through a one day orientation. During the training participants learn about and practice building power, doing one on ones and recruiting leaders, the campaigns MPA is currently engaged in, and more. Following training, participants will be assigned an MPA staff person as their supervisor and work on individual work plans and goals for their time in the program. Participants will receive day-to-day supervision, ongoing training, and mentoring from their assigned staff member. Participants will also journal and meet regularly for reflection.
