Futures without Violence College Leadership Program

 Think you have what it takes to change campus attitudes on violence against women?

 Want to change the way your university’s policies addresses sexual and dating violence?

 See a need to strengthen what’s taught in your classes around violence against women?

 

Since 1998, Futures without Violence has hosted interns in the fields of medical, legal, public health, and social work.  Now, Futures without Violence is launching a Campus Leadership Program to raise awareness and spur student-led action on college campuses.

The Futures without Violence Campus Leadership Program will choose six graduate-level students from across the country to improve their college’s awareness and response to gender-based violence.  This program is open to graduate students and PhD candidates in the fields of medical, nursing, public health, social work, psychology, and other health care-related areas.

Chosen campus leaders will develop and implement an organizing plan for the college or university to address domestic and sexual violence issues, receive a $500 stipend with an additional $1,000 available on a per-project basis, and travel to San Francisco to participate with other Campus Leaders.

Requirements for applicants include working at least five hours per week, being available for a monthly phone check-in or video conference, being available for a two-day training in San Francisco on July 18 and 19, and a letter of support from campus faculty.  All interested applicants can find the application through this link.

The deadline for application submissions is Wednesday, May 15, and applicants will be notified of their acceptance in early June.  Completed applications and any further questions sh0uld be sent to LSohn@FuturesWithoutViolence.org.

Futures without Violence works with advocates, policy makers, and others to build sustainable community leadership and educate people everywhere about the importance of respect and healthy relationships – the relationships that all individuals, families, and communities need and deserve.
