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 training, 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.
