Young Invincibles and the Cognosante Foundation are launching a summer fellowship program that will provide students with the opportunity to learn a range of skills in our nation’s capital, from policy research, organizing and advocacy, to communications strategies, to business skills – all while experiencing all that Washington, DC has to offer.

Young Invincibles is seeking interested candidates to join our summer fellowship program, YI Scholars, for a professional and educational experience in Washington, DC. YI Scholars will have the opportunity to learn leadership and professional skills, be trained on the issue areas that Young Invincibles advocates for, explore both the non-profit and business sector and participate in educational activities throughout DC. Each YI Scholar will get a chance to work across the organization in policy and research, communications, and organizing. In addition, YI Scholars will become a part of a YI Alumni Network to ensure that they continue to engage with other young leaders as they begin their careers. This position is full-time, temporary for 10 weeks (June 1 – August 7), and pays a stipend of $5,000. The program also covers the cost of a roundtrip plane ticket for the fellow to travel to DC and back home. Preference will be given to first generation college students.
