Advocacy Corps
2018-2019
Want to become an Advocacy Corps organizer? As an Advocacy Corps member, you'll connect local activists and leaders with your members of Congress to affect big, long-term change. You'll also learn critical organizing skills and put them into practice with hands-on leadership experience. We’re looking for creative, passionate people who can spend 10 days in Washington in the summer (all expenses paid) and then work 25 to 35 hours a month back on their college campus or in their home community to mobilize people to engage with Congress. Advocacy Corps organizers will all help organize meetings with members of Congress in their local offices. But your work with the Advocacy Corps will be unique to you. We'll help you develop a work plan that highlights your strengths and fits your community.

What you'll learn and do

  • Recruit local volunteers
  • Meet with members of Congress
  • Organize others to meet with members of Congress and their staff
  • Write letters to the editor, op-eds
  • Mobilize people to come to Washington

The logistics:

  • Apply by April 10, 2017.
  • Spend 10 days in Washington, DC at the Summer Intensive Training. Meet other Corps members and FCNL staff.
  • Organize in your community from September through May.
  • Come back to DC -- expenses paid -- for the weekend in November and March for FCNL's lobby days.
  • Get paid $3000 for successful work.
