  • Fellowships Overview


    The Fellows program is designed to support and convert more people to work on Netcentric Campaigns mission "transform the advocacy work of nonprofits and foundations by mobilizing networks of people to move change forward effectively and efficiently". Netcentric Campaigns Fellowship work reflects our fundamental driving principals and is focused on capturing perspectives and lessons learned from network building for advocacy over the years. Netcentric Campaigns commits to working with Fellows and creating a network among them to advance the following goals:

     

    Strengthen the civil society sector and each individual Fellows' capacity to work in a distributed network and advance network building practices in nonprofit and social campaigns. Support network collaborations on complex important and widely distributed projects or campaigns.

     

    Push power and funding out to new allies and new fellows that not only want to build the network skills but also need funding to be synergistic with their personal missions and passions. The goal is to drive network-centric model and successes ever outward by incubating the skills within as many fellows as possible making the work part of their careers and spreading the influence of their skills into the organizations that hire and depend on them.

    Netcentric Campaigns seeks fellows with a "spirit of adventure." The Fellowship program is an evolving experiment. Simply put, we working it out as we go. As such, Fellows need to know and be comfortable that they are not connecting into a fully organized fellowship. We will always be most interested in supporting "self-directed" vs "teacher directed" fellowships to make a contribution to network building field. Early pioneers in the Fellowship are helping us test a new model for our work and are going to need self-commitment to get the most out of the opportunity.
