Kindred World Launches Fellowship Program to Support Next Generation of Changemakers
Kindred Fellowship Program Accepting Applications Beginning March 1, 2021
KFP Program Launches June 14, 2021 to July 31 2021
(March 1, 2021) –– Kindred World is proud to announce the launch of its newest endeavor, the Kindred Fellowship Program (KFP). KFP’s inaugural session takes place in summer 2021 with applications opening March 1, 2021. KFP’s mission is to guide college students on an innovative educational journey that explores the systemic roots of social (in)justice in childhood through kindred activism: a theory of activism centering childhood in activism that is authentic, reflexive and relational.
During the program, fellows are led by experienced instructors to explore the promise of kindred activism and its practical application to community engagement. With the mentorship of Kindred’s network of thought-leaders, Kindred fellows will be prepared and supported to launch their own innovative community action ideas and begin a life-long journey of maximizing their impact on social justice.
The Kindred Fellowship Program is A NEW Social Justice Education Fellowship for college students that centers childhood in activism. Kindred Fellows will:
- Discover your authentic voice for social justice
- Develop your activism into a lifestyle with the tools necessary to create the change you wish to see in the world; in your self, your relationships, and in everyday moments
- Become empowered to transform the roots of (in)justice in childhood and maximize your community and global impact
For a quarter century, Kindred World thought-leaders have been exploring the connections among human consciousness, human and nonhuman kin, and ecological systems. As awareness of “One Family, One World” expands, humanity connects more authentically with ourselves, our family, and our world, but also with our capacity to achieve lasting social justice. Kindred’s new connected story of human kinship is bringing forth the possibility for a new story of activism.
The Kindred Fellowship Program application goes live on March 1st, 2021. The application deadline is April 11, 2021.
You can access and share the application here.
The 2021 fellowship program takes place June 14th – July 31st.
