•Fellows will work 40 hours per week for the agency in a capacity-building role.
•Fellows will follow the same guidelines as the organization’s other employees except those agreed upon by the agency, fellow, and program at the outset (see policies below).
•Agencies must be willing to offer fellows an engaging and interesting position that both fits the needs of the organization and is consistent with the goals of the Philly Fellows program.
•Agencies must provide the fellow with an appropriate work environment and materials, and must assign a supervisor for the fellow's project.
•Agencies will provide a job description and appropriate training to fellows at the beginning of their fellowship.
•All Philly Fellows are AmeriCorps*VISTA members, and their positions must serve to build the capacity of the agency (as opposed to direct service), work towards the elimination of poverty, and cannot include direct religious or political activity. See more here.
•Agencies will contribute to the cost of the program, paying quarterly installments directly to the Philly Fellows program during the fellowship year. The 2014-2015 host agencies will pay $15,000 for the full year. These payments support fellows' stipends, housing costs, and professional development, as well as program administration.
