New Zealand Fellowship

New Zealand, 17th March - 10th May

Applications are still open for 2-3 remaining places, so please apply quickly or encourage your peers to apply today!

The fellowship involves five evening webinars with expert presenters, and is book-ended by two intensive 4-day retreats, and kicks off on March 17.

It will bring together a diverse cohort of fellows – talented campaigners, activists, organisers, communicators and policy makers.  We’re proud that community organising expert and campaigns coach, Anita Tang, will convene the fellowship.

The fellowship is designed to provide New Zealand civil society with space to support each other and learn together – and thus winning in the major fights on climate change, job security, education funding, international aid, the rights of indigenous people, reducing health inequities and more.

Topics and guest speakers will include historical Māori campaigning, and how this can relate to creating social change for Aotearoa in the 21st Century

We invite you to apply – or encourage the most talented staff on your team to do so. We particularly encourage applications from people of Maori and Pasifika backgrounds.

Together with the Blind Foundation, the New Zealand Council of Trade Unions, Hapai Te Hauora Tapui, Action Station and many more – we’re designing a program especially for mid to senior level campaigners, non-profit managers and community organisers from top non-profits, savvy social movements and innovative trade unions.

Watch the video below from an Australian fellowship cohort, review the prospectus to see if it’s right for you, and then apply here.

The Fellowship Program is a leadership course for a specific type of leader: senior people working to change the world through public advocacy.

Graduates of the Fellowship Program are fluent in campaign strategy and theory of change, and confident in using a full suite of campaign tactics. More importantly, they join an alumni of supportive peers, who together will continue to provide each other with support, advice and friendship for many years to come. In short, we help good people win more campaigns

We still have a small number of spots left in the cohort, applicants will be interviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. 

To apply, first download and review the prospectus to make sure that the Program is right for you, then fill out the application form.
