Job: Franklin Fellows Program (Dept. of State)

Deadline for Applications: July 27, 2018

The Franklin Fellows Program is a unique and innovative program that taps citizens’ knowledge and enables approved organizations to promote public service by their professionals. Mid-career and more senior Franklin Fellows work on issues of vital importance to the United States, such as trade and financial policy, entrepreneurship, counterterrorism, regional issues, human rights, and trans-national diseases. Fellows are not compensated by the Department of State. Rather, their employers or other organization sponsor them, or they sponsor themselves. They return to their home organizations and communities with a much-enhanced knowledge of foreign and development policy and government operations and culture. If your organization has an international focus, allowing your employees to spend a sabbatical year as a Franklin Fellow can be an ideal way to develop their talent and position your organization to excel.

What is the Franklin Fellows Program?

Franklin Fellows are senior and mid-level professionals who serve a one-year unpaid fellowship at the Department of State or at USAID.

Working as experts and consultants on a wide range of issues and subjects, Franklin Fellows contribute their knowledge, experience, and specialized skills. While at State or USAID, Franklin Fellows gain first-hand insight into the world of foreign policy and development.

Franklin Fellows must be American citizens, with a minimum five years’ experience, and able to get a security clearance.

The Franklin Fellowship is not a path to employment at the Department of State or USAID.

After their year in Government, most “sponsored” Fellows return to their academic institutions, private-sector companies, and non-governmental organizations. The Franklin Fellowship is ideal as a sabbatical year for academics, or as an executive development program for the private sector, NGOs, and state and local government.

Some Fellows are “self-nominated” who use the Fellowship as an investment in their future, developing skills and rounding out their experience.

Job: Summer Camp Counselor (Concordia Language Village)

Deadline for Applications: Ongoing, Until Filled

See message below for details:

“Concordia Language Villages’ summer Russian immersion program for kids ages 6-18 is looking for one male counselor for July 10 – August 12, 2018. (Staff and kids are housed by gender, and we have completed staffing for counselors in our girls’ cabins, but one spot remains in the boys’ cabins.) We may also have an opening for a high school credit teacher (any gender), depending on enrollment.

Interested candidates can use this link to explore Concordia Language Villages in general and the Russian Village (Лесное озеро) in particular:
http://www.concordialanguagevillages.org/youth-languages/russian-language-village/working-at-lesnoe-ozero

The high school credit teacher position requires some teaching experience, but the counselor position is appropriate for those with abundant energy but little or no teaching experience, as we provide intensive teacher training, a very thorough curriculum, and in-service support.

In general, most successful applicants are usually either native speakers, heritage speakers or L2 speakers who have already spent at least a year in a Russian-speaking country, as this work requires a strong command of informal spoken Russian. Staff members are expected to be able to use Russian to communicate both in staff meetings and with campers in all daily life situations. This is a summer camp experience in cabins in the woods, so prospective staff should enjoy rustic living, physical exertion, and sharing responsibility for maintaining communal spaces.

If anyone has questions, please feel free to share my contact info:ravitch@cord.edu .”
