Bring Civic Saturday to your community

Civic Saturday Fellowship Program

All around the country, we are facing a crisis in civic life – people are becoming more socially isolated, disconnected from a sense of common purpose, and cynical about their own ability to affect change. Enter Civic Saturday: a gathering that brings communities together to cultivate a sense of shared civic purpose and moral clarity. At Civic Saturday share a meaningful communal experience, and leave inspired to become more powerful, responsible citizens.

The Civic Saturday Fellowship prepares motivated, local leaders (or, as we like to say, civic catalysts!) to start their own Civic Saturday gatherings in their home communities. In this nine-month fellowship, civic catalysts will attend the Civic Seminary, a three-day training in Seattle with Citizen University staff, and return home ready to create lasting impact in the civic life of their communities.

Interested? If you’d like to apply to the Civic Saturday Fellowship, you can add your name to the interest list to be notified when applications open next.

We will be accepting late applications to the Civic Saturday Fellowship. If you’d like to still apply, contact Senior Program Manager, Taneum Fotheringill, at taneum@citizenuniversity.us by Friday, July 10, 2020.
