Become an OPAL Education Fellow
OPAL Education Fellows are students who support OPAL education initiatives through programming and projects related to social justice education, community, and professional development. Some projects students are currently working on include:
- Building a resource around harmful language and microaggressions
- Collecting facts around police brutality and mass incarceration
Students work independently or in small groups on their own time and meet weekly as a large group.
Thinking of Becoming an Education Fellow?
Education Fellows is meant for students interested in engaging with social justice from a programming or project-driven lens. Complementary to being an Ambassador, Fellows work more on one-time events, projects or awareness campaigns mixing their personal, academic and professional passions with social justice.
This role is generally a more flexible and shorter time commitment than being an ambassador. The Fellows program is ideal for students exploring their own identities and developing their social justice awareness, for students who do not feel as ready or interested in becoming a facilitator, or for students with limited time and flexibility in their schedules. This tends to be a more self-driven program as students will work independently or in small groups.
In 20W, Ambassadors and Fellows have weekly hourly meetings together to collaborate on ideas and projects.
