Organization Information

Thanks to a generous donation from the Maher Family Foundation, the Civic Spring Fellowship Summer 2023 Fellowship seeks to support up to five Fellowship Teams from organizations that support youth located across the state of New Jersey. Fellowship Teams will include 4-5 youth (ages 14-24) plus a Team Lead or Co-Leads (ages 14 and above) who seek to address an immediate need in the community. Civic Spring will provide stipends of $1,800 directly to each Fellow as well as a $4,000 direct payment to the Team Lead. An additional amount of up to $1,000 will be provided to each organization to offset expenses.

This is an ideal opportunity for community, faith-based, regional, governmental, business, or other organizations interested in developing and sustaining meaningful youth engagement as part of the organizational structure. Project topics and proposals must be conceived of and written by the Fellowship Team and should align with the organization’s or entity’s mission and vision.

Over the eleven-weeks, organizations will be challenged to work with their Fellowship teams to integrate and sustain the project model and/or elements of the project model beyond the program duration.

Organization-based teams should refer to the Fellowship Team Information page for more information. Organizations will be required to apply through the Team Lead and Fellow applications found here
