Leadership Development

MOVE Texas is training the next generation of civic leaders through our Leadership Development program, the premier field training program in the state of Texas.

 

Fellowship

Our fellowship is for folks who are ready to take the next step in their personal and professional development. Our fellows work directly with MOVE leadership to deepen our work, assist in key decision-making, mentor interns and volunteers, represent our organization in the community, and more. Fellows are paid and work 20-25 hours/week, which is split between hands-on work in their department, statewide team meetings, and a group research project on social movements. In addition, fellows attend an orientation at the beginning of the semester and graduation at the close of the semester.

Our internship is the perfect opportunity for folks looking to begin their career in community organizing, political advocacy, or the non-profit sector, as well as anyone who is passionate about creating change in their community. Interns volunteer 10-15 hours/week, which is split between hands-on work in their department, statewide team meetings, and a group research project on social movements. In addition, interns attend an orientation at the beginning of the semester and graduation at the close of the semester.
