The North Carolina Democratic Party is proud to announce the Eva Clayton Fellowship Program, honoring the first African American woman to represent North Carolina in Congress. The Eva Clayton Fellowship Program is a paid part time leadership opportunity designed to develop the next generation of leaders with an emphasis on diversity and inclusion. We seek to develop leaders in communications, data, finance and community affairs through training, mentorship and project based work.
Fellows will work 15 hours a week at the Goodwin House in Raleigh and be compensated a monthly stipend.
Fellowship will begin on February 4th, 2019
- Foundation: 2 day soft skills training (resume building, professional etiquette, and peer to peer communication)
- Mentorship: Weekly lunch meetings with party leaders and elected officials to develop various topics such as the importance of minorities in politics, how to transfer the skills learned during this fellowship to future opportunities and how to market yourself.
- Leadership: Each department will give their fellows 1 project that they can take ownership of for the duration of their time at the NCDP. These projects are designed to prepare and train fellows with skills that are vital for the 21st century workforce.
