The Greater Milwaukee Foundation encourages community members from the Harambee, Brewers Hill and Halyard Park neighborhoods to apply for the two (2) Community Organizer and Research Fellow opportunities. These positions will provide individuals an opportunity to try out a career, apply their education and/or experience in a hands-on way, while building a professional network. The Community Organizer and Research Fellows will develop their capacity as a community organizer and/or researcher, plan and develop opportunities for a diverse group of constituent involvement that will inform the Greater Milwaukee Foundation and Medical College of Wisconsin’s strategic investment in support of residents in these neighborhoods and beyond. Although both Fellows will focus on resident engagement and participate in organizing activities, one will concentrate on community research and the other will focus on community organizing.
