Generation West Virginia is now accepting applications for the next round of the Impact Fellowship! Impact Fellows are part of a year-long, paid fellowship program. During the course of a year, fellows work four days a week at participating companies, while dedicating one day a week donating their brainpower, time and expertise to projects in partnership with local nonprofit organizations.
From the team at Generation West Virginia:
“Impact is looking for early- to mid-career innovators and professionals across wide-ranging sectors who are driven to get engaged and make a difference in West Virginia. Unlike many fellowship programs, the Impact Fellowship is not limited to applicants in a certain sector or field of study. This program offers professional work opportunities to qualified designers, architects, marketers, analysts, developers, engineers, artists, managers, bankers, etc. (check out the Companies & Jobs page to check out this year’s positions). While coming from different professional and educational backgrounds, what all Impact Fellows have in common is a drive to make an impact. Impact Fellows are doers. They are change agents in their professional workplaces and in their communities. They don’t back down from complex challenges—in fact, they are driven to help find new solutions. And they are eager to dive into this work in West Virginia. If this sounds like you, we want to hear from you.”
