The Junior Fellowship program is a four month overseas placement working in one of EWB’s many ventures.
Prior to the placement, the volunteer is expected to prepare by reviewing all necessary materials, attending national conference, and participating in pre-departure trainings, all the while continuing to be a contributing member in the chapter. After the four month overseas placement, the returning Junior Fellow will be required to fulfill the remainder of the program’s objective by staying with the chapter for at least one more year to share valuable learning with the community and mentor the future Junior Fellow.
This placement focuses on building great leaders while providing members with the opportunity to create impact overseas. We recognize that four months is a short time to provide lasting impact in a developing country, so our volunteers are encouraged to return to the chapter and community to raise awareness and knowledge, perhaps providing the greatest impact at home.
Candidates of all faculties and disciplines are welcome to apply. No previous international development or EWB experience is necessary!
To be considered for a Junior Fellowship, candidates must meet the following requirements:
The candidate must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
(This is due to funding and security concerns with the Canadian government)
The candidate must be a member of the chapter who will be returning to school.
The candidate must be willing to assume a formal or informal leadership role in the chapter in the following year.
The candidate must be available to volunteer for the entire period of the placement (Approximately May 1 to Aug 31).
The candidate must be at least 18 years old at the time of their application.
The candidate must be able to attend the EWB National Conference held the year of departure.
