ABOUT The RADIUS FELLOWSHIP

RADIUS Fellowship

Who you are

Are you a RADIUS Fellow?

We are looking for the next generation of untamed social innovators who are early in their changemaking journey, demonstrating a relentless dedication to creating positive, sustainable impact in all they do.

Ideal Fellows are those who want to make a 4-month commitment to developing their leadership capacity, building their professional networks, and generously supporting their peers. A curious and collaborative mindset is a prerequisite.

about

The Fellowship Program

WHO

The Fellows program suits recent alumni and young professionals who self-identify as changemakers, social innovators, or social entrepreneurs. It is designed to be complementary to someone studying or working full- or part-time, with predominantly evening sessions.

DOERS

  • You are unhappy with the status quo and working to build better solutions.
  • You’ve got a track record of working on projects that matter to you and society.
  • You recognize you can’t do it alone and you are radically generous in your approach to working with others.

EXPLORERS

  • You are constantly seeking out new opportunities to learn about yourself and the systems you live in.
  • You explore the interfaces between the systemic and the particular, and seek understand causes and effects at various scales.
  • You experiment and take risks. When it doesn’t work out, you ask why? And then you try again.

LOCALLY INVESTED

  • You are committed to finding a way to make it work in Metro Vancouver.
  •  You’re invested in this place and in keeping other awesome folks here too.

WHAT

The Fellowship is particularly interested in applicants with interest, expertise or projects in the following areas:

  • Health Promotion
  • Refugee and Newcomer Settlement and Integration
  • Future of Work/Precarious Employment
  • Future of Education

We also seek to support Fellows whose craft is relevant to all sectors, particularly if you are interested in supporting the thematic areas listed above.

Your area of work not on this list? We’d still love you to apply!
