Description

The world needs you – your heartbreak, your hope, your action - now more than ever.

Life Together is a ten-month fellowship and leadership development project that matches young leaders (21-32 years of age) with mission-based non-profit organizations and churches throughout Eastern Massachusetts, and then trains these fellows through spiritual practice, shared leadership models, and community organizing tools.

During their year with Life Together, fellows work for social justice, grow as leaders, and live in community with other fellows. Fellows will serve from August 2019 until June 2020, with the option to stay for a second year. Life Together is a strategic initiative of The Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts and an affiliate program of the Episcopal Service Corps.

Position Description
Safe Havens is a multi-religious nonprofit that provides training, resources, and technical assistance to diverse faith leaders and faith communities to strengthen safe and effective responses to survivors of domestic and sexual violence and elder abuse. Safe Havens also provides services to domestic and sexual violence and elder abuse service providers who are responding to the needs of clients who are faithful and/or reaching out to local faith communities to strengthen a community-wide response to survivors and to promote prevention.

The 2019-2020 Life Together fellow will build capacity and strengthen effectiveness at Safe Havens through five specific project areas:
1. Communications with donors and constituents
2. Event Planning, especially for Safe Havens's annual IMPACT award ceremony and fundraiser
3. Fundraising and Development
4. Programming and Volunteer Engagement
5. Participate in Safe Havens's trainings
