Global LEAD International Fellows Program 2012-2013
Role and Responsibilities
The Fellows Program will run from March 2012 – August 2013 and has three main goals:
1. Develop strong International Program Directors
2. Grow and cultivate core marketing team members
3. Create Global LEADers who can take these skills and excel in the field of their passion
March-August 2012: International Programming
This half of the year will be spent focusing on our International Programming. You will work alongside our Chief Operations Officer, Courtney Doran, in program development, international relations and service project creation. From March – May 2012, you will be able to work remotely on a part-time basis if you currently a college senior or fulfilling your tenure at your current job. Starting early May, the position will be full-time based out of Atlanta. You will then spend the summer abroad as the Assistant Program Director in one of our three amazing locations—Cape Town, Greece or Ecuador! This provides you the opportunity to see every angle on the program – from the overall goals to the daily details- and will prepare you to run the program on your own in 2013.
September 2012-February 2013: Marketing and Corporate Operations
During this season you will assist our Marketing Director, Carolyn Prebil, and Director of Growth and Development, Joanna Harbin, as they develop innovative ways to educate others about our programs. You will travel to university campuses all over the southeast speaking to students about our mission and encouraging students to participate. As a core member of the marketing team, you will be responsible for multiple channels of communication: social media, videos, targeted e-mail campaigns, national and local initiatives, strategic partners and expansion efforts. In addition, you will have the opportunity to get a 360° view of how a business operates while being personally mentored by Global LEAD’s CEO, Robbie Reese.
March 2013-August 2013: International Programming
After working with Global LEAD for a year and seeing our international programs firsthand, you will be integral in our staff training and preparation for our summer programs. You will also have the opportunity to go abroad again and lead a summer program on your own. This international work experience is truly one of the most unique components of the Fellows Program.
Compensation and Benefits
Traveling to exotic places, experiencing amazing adventures, connecting and inspiring students, serving in incredible communities, creating new ways to impact students, visiting college campuses to communicate our mission, getting personally mentored for 18 months by entrepreneurs and never having to wear a suit…sound like a dream job?
