Program Overview (from the program website):

The Fellows Program continues YSOP's mission of engaging young people in direct service, while encouraging their development as the future leaders of non-profit organization. YSOP Fellows are involved with every aspect of our organization and must be able to multi-task, as Fellows will execute a variety of responsibilities each day. Fellows lead middle school, high school and college students on our day-long, overnight and week-long service-learning programs. Fellows identify and schedule service placements at service agencies and also encourage reflection on the volunteer experience. Fellows help organize and prepare for all aspects of our programs, including contacting guest speakers, reviewing program evaluations and contacting upcoming program participants. Fellows help with the management of our organization. Responsibilities may include outreach, writing newsletters and publicity, website management, and working with YSOP's Board of Directors.

The YSOP Fellows Program requires a one-year commitment and will begin mid to late September. YSOP offers $15,000 as a Living Allowance, $87/month for commutation and other travel expenses, and participation in YSOP's medical insurance plan. Fellows also receive 10 days of vacation and 10 days of medical or personal leave. Upon completion of 1,700 hours of service, YSOP Fellows may be eligible to receive a $5,350 AmeriCorps Education award from the Corporation of National and Community Service. Enrollment may also permit a Fellow to defer payment of outstanding student loans for the duration of their YSOP AmeriCorps service.
