Dear students,

Dear friends and educators,

The application deadline for this unique social justice opportunity is THIS FRIDAY! Please continue reading and spread the word among young women ages 16-22.

Countdown to application deadline: 5 DAYS!

The ELLA Fellowship Program<http://www.sadienash.org/programs_ella.htm> is based on SNLP’s central philosophy that opportunities for community leadership are integral to addressing issues affecting young women. ELLA is named for social activist, Ella Baker, and stands for Engage, Learn, Lead and Act. It is also means “she” in Spanish.

The ELLA (Engage, Learn, Lead, and Act) Fellowship, named for civil rights leader, Ella Baker, offers young women aged 16-22 the opportunity to develop and implement their own leadership project with specialized guidance from SNLP.  The Fellowship includes a generous award and additional allowance to implement a social justice project that addresses issues in the Fellow’s community.  All Fellows are required to attend monthly retreats, committing to a 9-month Fellowship cycle starting in October and culminating in June with a project showcase.

In order to be eligible, youth must:
·  Be a self-identified young woman between the ages of 16 and 22
·  Have at least 2 years of prior leadership experience
·  Commit to attending monthly retreats in the New York City area
·  Identify a mentor to support your community-based work
·  Be a self-motivated, passionate, and committed individual that wants to make change in your community
·  Have a good understanding of a social justice issue affecting a community you belong to
·  Desire to develop leadership skills and increase your self confidence
