QuEST is a service year fellowship in Seattle, Washington, that provides recent college graduates with quality work at local nonprofits, an intentional residential community as a cohort, and opportunities for training and reflection. QuEST Fellows are matched with one of our partner agencies in full-time year-long positions. The six Fellows live together in a shared house in Seattle’s University District and they receive room and board, a personal stipend, transportation and health care funds, mentorship and training, and student loan support.
The Community Organizing Fellow at Washington Housing Alliance Action Fund is one placement for the 2021-2022 program year. This position supports all levels of the Action Fund’s voter engagement program including mobilizing volunteers for Get-Out-The-Vote canvasses (field and phone) in support of housing champions, leading voter registration activities, and advancing the Housing Voter campaign. The Community Organizing Fellow will also coordinate to engage residents of low-income housing in organizing, issue education, state and local public policy advocacy, civic engagement, and leadership development.
QuEST is in rolling admissions, with deadlines on the 1st and 15th of each month until placements are filled. Please learn more about the program, this and other placements, and download our application from our website.
