Apply to be a Reality Fellow 2018-2019!
We welcome you to apply to be a Reality Fellow! These four young adults (ages 21-28) will spend a year living amongst, serving alongside, and learning from our community of friends with and without developmental disabilities.
The Reality Fellows Program is a unique and unforgettable experience! A year as a Fellow is an immersion into:
Life within a beloved community
Discovering your own vocational gifts and aspirations
Transformative service toward those who are typically marginalized
Learning from these same people, who have so much wisdom about following Jesus
The Reality Fellows Program consists of two overlapping elements. First, the Fellows join the Reality Ministries staff, and they are a major part of what we do. They are entrusted with leading programs, building friendships with participants, and contributing their unique ideas and energy to our team! They receive lots of support from the staff, making it a really wonderful place to try out new things and grow into leadership. Fellows will also be engaging in reflection together and with staff members, both over their work and over various Christian writings and practices. For a more detailed job description, click here.
Second, the Fellows take up residence in the North Street Neighborhood (about a half mile from the Reality Center), a community intentionally structured around people living with disability. Residents participate in life together in many ways, including prayer, meals, events, and many, many spontaneous porch hangouts (everyone there has a porch!). You will be living with one other Fellow in an apartment in one of the houses. Also, the area is very cool, with good food, parks, pubs, walking/running trails, and everything else you could want nearby. For more on the North Street Neighborhood, click here!
Each Fellow receives a $600 monthly stipend, free housing and utilities, and at least six meals per week through Reality’s programs.
Dates: The program will run August 2018 - July 2019.
We will review applications upon receipt until February 8, 2018 or until all positions are filled.
To apply, submit the Reality Fellow 2018-2019 Application. You can attach a letter of recommendation with your application but this is not required.
