BE THE BRIDGE
Do you still dream of your first summer at EFLI? Do you want to support other young people in their EFLI journey? Do you value opportunities that challenge you, make you laugh, and allow you to build strong relationships and lifelong friends? If you answered 'yes!' to any of the above questions and you will have graduated high school by June 2017, we encourage you to apply to be a 2017 LIFE FELLOW.
LiFe Fellows are integral to all EFLI programs and serve as a bridge between participants and facilitators. As a LIFE FELLOW, you'll have the opportunity to facilitate group workshops, act as a peer leader for program participants and assist in program development. Put your leadership skills into practice as a 2017 LIFE FELLOW.
THE LIFE FELLOWSHIP is open to:
- Past EFLI participants who have completed high school by June 2017
- Local to Westchester County or able to arrange local housing and/or transportation
- Demonstrated interest in working with young people and learning group facilitation
- Must have completed a prior EFLI summer or an equivalent leadership program
- Fellows must commit to attending all program days, including at least one retreat during summer 2017
DATES: Fellows are an integral part of EFLI summer programs, and, as such, the LiFe Fellowship is a large commitment. The Fellowship runs from June 28 through August 18, with mandatory training days from June 28 - 30.
STIPEND: Fellows will receive a small stipend for the summer. Additionally:
- Breakfast and lunch is included for all LiFe Fellows
- All Fellows receive an EFLI certificate of completion during the closing ceremony celebration
