At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

Community Organizing and Civic Engagement in Chicago's Chinatown Community

Paid Fellowships in Community Organizing and Civic Engagement in Chicago’s Chinatown Community

This opportunity is a four-month paid fellowship (7/19-11/21) for students interested in working with immigrant communities and exploring careers in social justice work. Participants will receive training in community organizing skills and a stipend of $325/week. Fellows will be supervised and placed in Chicago's Chinatown community.
We are looking for applicants who are willing to work hard, ready for a challenge, and are passionate for social justice and democratic participation. Previous experience is not required, but helpful. Because the fellow will be working with community volunteers and conducting extensive outreach, this will not be a 9-5 job, but will require commitment and flexibility. It will be essential to have a full-time use of a car. We will pay a stipend for mileage and specific job-related expenses.
Applicants who speak Cantonese and/or Mandarin are especially encouraged to apply.
Last Day to Apply: June 4th, 2010. To apply, please fill out the following application to ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­ Questions? Call 312-576-8032
