Who We Want
The RespectAbility development/fundraising fellowship program is ideal for people who want to gain skills and experience while making a positive difference for people with disabilities. We are looking for detail oriented and results-driven individuals who want to achieve solid results while getting hands-on experience. Excellent communication, computer and organizational skills are required. The fellowship is great for college and graduate students, as well as for people transitioning into the workforce for the first time, or back into the workforce after a break.


Fellowship Duties
Fellows will work directly with RespectAbility President Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi and Development and Operations Associate Hillary Steen. They must exhibit leadership skills to complete their own projects. Individual projects will be assigned based on an individual’s unique skill set and their own ability to “bring something to the table.” Upon the completion of the fellowship program, applicants can expect to come away with excellent experience in the field of development, as well as fair knowledge of issues for people with disabilities
