What alumni of the fellowship program are saying:

This fellowship combined real world projects with a specific 10-week organizing curriculum – as well as access to constant political events – to provide a well-rounded learning experience.

My favorite aspect of the internship included the learning sessions, during which various members of the 50+1 team – including founders Nicole and Addisu – volunteered to spend time specifically teaching the fellows “trade secrets” and general overviews of how to effectively organize support in the political consulting world.

I highly recommend the fellowship to college undergraduates, especially as a first-time political consulting experience. The team of 50+1 associates, especially the program manager Jessica Lovejoy, ensured that interns receive one-on-one training and first hand experience in the field. If you’re curious about political consulting, campaigns, or SF politics, this fellowship is a perfect introduction to the field!

2015 Summer Fellow

My time as a fellow was such an incredible experience. I immediately was given so much responsibility and treated as a part of the team. 50+1 really trusts their fellows, and makes sure every fellow has as much hands on experience as possible.

I didn’t just shadow people doing campaign work, I did the work myself! In these 10 weeks, I learned what it truly takes to manage a campaign. Throughout the summer, I got a first-hand look inside San Francisco politics and made relationships both in and out of 50+1 that I will keep for years to come.

Thanks to 50+1, I feel confident that I can go on and work in any political capacity. I would highly recommend this fellowship to anyone looking to dive into political organizing.

2015 Summer Fellow

This summer as a 50+1 Strategies fellow, I had the opportunity to work closely with each Associate on the development of strong and effective campaigns related to policies and issues here in the San Francisco/Bay Area.

The 50+1 Strategies summer fellows program taught me how to strategically organize a successful campaign and how to physically apply the organizing strategies I learned. I attended presentations, workshops, and events such as debates and public hearings that gave me a great sense as to what key factors are needed to run a successful political campaign.

I look forward to gaining more knowledge and experience in campaign development and grassroots organizing as well as building a lasting relationship with the other team members of 50+1 Strategies.
