Project REACH Fellowship | Apply by September 6

The Irving Institute for Clinical and Translational Research is offering the Project REACH Fellowship in Fall 2019, a ten-week training on implementing communication strategies to community outreach and engagement. Graduate students will be partnered with a community-based organization for the entire training to co-develop outreach tools for the organization’s client engagement efforts. The Fellowship is an worthwhile opportunity for students to learn how to communicate and engage stakeholders as well as practice working collaboratively with other professionals from various fields. They are keen to have students apply from different schools at Columbia, including the School of Social Work!

Some of the organizations participating in Fall 2019, that students could be partnered with, include: 

  • ARC Seniors consists of three senior centers and provides transportation to seniors in the Washington Heights and Harlem communities. ARC Seniors works to ensure that older adults in these communities continue to have a  high quality of life. 
  • Coalicion Mexicana seeks to empower Latinx youth and families in New York City.  
  • El Nido de Esperanza offers a variety of services geared towards parents and children. Areas that are covered by these services include nutrition, education, safety and community building.  

See the attached flyer below for more information about the Fellowship. You can also check out our their instagram account (@irvinginstitute_projectreach) or facebook page (Irving Institute – Project REACH) for more information.
