The LA Fellows program is seeking nonprofit organizations who are interested in hosting an LA Fellow. They should have a need within their organization where they can effectively use a highly skilled, mid-manager level individual in a project based role and in some cases executive duties.

The LA Fellow will be connected to the nonprofit through a meaningful match and will donate 100 hours of their time and talents by sharing their professional expertise with them.

If you are a nonprofit interested in hosting an LA Fellow please fill out an application.

The next step is for you to fill out a short application outlining the volunteer opportunities. Please fill out a separate application for each project based role. Include as many details as you can so we can be sure to match the right person with your organization.

We will provide you with an MOU to sign prior to the volunteer assignment starting.
