Becarios del Campus

"Ser becaria ha sido mi trabajo más valioso hasta ahora. En general, esta experiencia me ha enseñado mucho sobre el trabajo de defensa, el trabajo no partidista, un entorno de trabajo saludable y feliz, la gestión del tiempo y, por supuesto, la gravedad de muchos problemas medioambientales diferentes en Carolina del Norte y más allá".
- Antiguo alumno de Campus Fellow

El programa Campus Fellows contrata a estudiantes universitarios de los campus de Carolina del Norte para que organicen en sus comunidades y eduquen a sus compañeros sobre el voto en las elecciones de nuestro estado. Este programa permite a Conservation Network aumentar nuestra capacidad de organización en Carolina del Norte, implicar a los jóvenes en campañas temáticas oportunas y crear una vía para los futuros líderes del movimiento ecologista. Cada becario trabaja entre 6 y 10 horas semanales durante el semestre escolar y recibe un estipendio de 150 dólares semanales.

The Campus Fellows program started in January 2022 with four students at four different universities. We’ve had fellows on eleven different campuses, with more than one fellow at several locations, including: UNC-Wilmington, Appalachian State, UNC-Greensboro, NC A&T, UNC, NC Central, NC State, ECU, Fayetteville State, Western Carolina, and UNC Charlotte.

Each Campus Fellow works with our organizers to conduct outreach on their campus around major issue campaigns. Our fellows have focused on stopping forever chemical (PFAS) pollution, promoting environmental justice, and opposing Duke Energy rate hikes and production of new, dirty energy generation. In addition, our fellows pivot to non-partisan Get-Out-the-Vote work around elections in the state, with particular focus on informing students about where and when to vote early. The Campus Fellows’ actions include planning events, speaking to classes, tabling on campus, and finding ways to collaborate with local allies and volunteers.

En cuatro semestres del programa, nuestros Campus Fellows han:

  1. Collected over 16,100 petition signatures on campaigns such as environmental justice, forever chemicals, and energy policy,
  2. Worked with more than 100 different community and campus organizations,
  3. Hosted or attended over 400 events and speaking engagements,
  4. Involucró a los estudiantes en la votación mediante mensajes de texto entre compañeros y guías electorales no partidistas.

One major goal of the Campus Fellows Program is preparing students to continue their advocacy work after graduation. Alumni of the program are continuing important work within their communities—some former fellows hold positions such as Regulatory Analyst at the NC Dept. of Environmental Quality, Vegan Program Coordinator at the Food Empowerment Project, Forestry Communications Specialist at the National Wildlife Federation, and Organizing Fellow here at NCCN. Check out this page that highlights some of our program graduates and their accomplishments.

As the program continues to grow, fellows will engage their peers on critical environmental issues in North Carolina. In the fall of 2024, fellows will conduct our largest ever Get-Out-the-Vote effort as the program continues to increase in scope and impact. NCCN has hired alumni of the Fellows Program who are helping us organize across the state and lead a new batch of Campus Fellows.
