***CALLIN' ALL CALI STUDENT LEADERS AND ORGANIZERS!***
2006 California Campus Leadership Project NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS!
The League of Pissed Off Voters is looking for 12 student organizers from across the state who will receive stipends to mobilize voters on their campuses in the Fall of 2006. Participating students will receive on-the ground training in Los Angeles, working with community based organizations including Bus Riders' Union, SCOPE/AGENDA, ALERT, and SEIU. Student Organizers will receive ongoing mentorship and support from the League and will be paired up with local community-based
organizations near their campus.
We welcome creative and fun approaches to engage students; these organizers will have the opportunity to shape this work fit for their campus community. We are looking to identify strong leaders who are organizing on their campuses, are interested in electoral organizing, want to further develop their skills, and need support.
We also want to take this off-campus and will be linking these student organizers with community-based organizations in the area as mentors in hopes that these leaders will continue to do social justice community work after graduation.
The deadline for applications is May 31st, 2006.
