Pre-Departure Campaign and Global Launch
Be a logistics guru for the 2019-20 Fellows. Now that you’re a savvy world traveler, you’re jazzed about making sure that all our incoming Fellows have their passports, visas, and other travel documentation in time for their August departure. For many Fellows, this will be the first time leaving the country (or even the state!) so it’s super important for you to:
Track and report on the Pre-Departure Campaign status for all Fellows
Schedule and email regular reminders to Fellows to ensure they submit their travel preparation materials on time; Make phone call reminders as necessary
Support the visa application process for Fellows
Coordinate transportation and domestic accommodations for Fellows
Participate in key leadership development training in preparation to facilitate, coach, mentor, and supervise fellows throughout Global Launch
Coordinate and execute fun events that contribute to the “special sauce” of Global Citizen Year trainings
Plan and facilitate sessions that support fellow readiness for immersion
As a member of the Global Launch Alumni Leadership Team, ensure the smooth execution of a successful Global Launch, including planning and facilitating alumni-led sessions, providing logistical support for other sessions, liaising with invited speakers, and coaching and supervising fellows
