I apologize if this is a duplication. This just came across my email,
and it seems like a great opportunity for students, tutors, colleagues,
etc.. Their offices are in NY, L.A., DC and Minneapolis.

National Gay and Lesbian Task Force

2010 Summer Academy Fellowship

June 7, 2010-August 13, 2010

What is the Academy for Leadership and Action?
The Task Force's Academy for Leadership and Action (the Academy)
prepares leaders and potential leaders, primarily at the local and state
levels, to fill the staff, board, and volunteer roles critical to the
success of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) movement.
We lead direct action for short-term gains, develop leadership and
long-term organizational capacity, and shift worldviews to frame LGBT
issues within a larger progressive social justice movement that makes
explicit connections to struggles against systematic oppression.  

What is the Summer Academy Fellowship?
This is not your average fellowship - this is your chance to create
change. 

The Summer Academy Fellowship is a paid social justice fellowship that's
furiously intense.  The program provides the first-hand, real-world
experience working for social justice necessary for becoming
professional organizers or capacity builders.  You'll learn to develop
and disseminate a progressive worldview that connects LGBT issues to
struggles against racism, classism, ableism, and spiritual oppression;
to build relationships with a broad-cross section of other LGBT movement
leaders, especially in communities of faith and communities of color,
that will endure for the long-term; and to mobilize mass numbers of
people for direct action targeted at achieving immediate political gains
for the LGBT community.  

Academy fellows will work on a combination of the following:
       * Work at the denominational and congregational levels within
communities of faith to change hearts and minds about LGBT people. 
       * Partner with communities of color to build organizational
capacity.
       * Lead trainings and collective actions for campaigns that yield
both short-term, local, ballot measure and legislative victories.    

Stipend and Placement
Summer fellows are paid a net stipend of $500 per week. The summer 2010
term runs from June through August with a possible November extension.
Organizing fellows work out of our offices in New York, Washington,
D.C., Los Angeles, or Minneapolis, MN. Summer organizers are responsible
for their own housing and living expenses.

Qualifications
Applicants interested should have:
       * Strong desire to excel as an organizer - openness and thirst
for learning, even if it means unlearning some things.
       * Organizing and training ability - demonstrated experience in
recruiting, motivating and training large numbers of staff and
volunteers to engage in collective action..  
       * Attention to Measurable Results - enormous drive to achieve
measurable progress towards meaningful social change.  
       * Ability to be a Team Player - enthusiastic desire to work as
part of a team in a fast-paced environment.
       * Knowledge of and great curiosity about all aspects of the LGBT
community, especially within communities of faith and communities of
color.  
       * Ability and desire to travel extensively - this fellowship may
require you to travel up to 15 days per month.
       * Work Ethic - willingness to work evening and weekend hours when
projects demand it.
       * Desire to recruit, motivate, train, and support volunteers and
staff - with a commitment to constantly building a bigger team and an
understanding of why a big team is important.
       * Demonstrated capacity and desire to work in a multi-cultural
environment where diversity based on race, ethnic origin, gender, age,
sexual orientation, real or perceived gender identity, physical ability,
and spiritual practice is an important value.
       * Commitment to pursuing organizing as a career.
       * Spanish fluency is strongly preferred.
