Gap Year- Community Health Fellowship @ Project Horshoe Farm – Applications due 2/18

This is an excellent gap year opportunity for upcoming graduates considering applying to graduate health programs.

Horseshoe Farm created a one-year educational grant supported Community Health Fellowship for top recent college graduates. Fellows live together in housing provided by Horseshoe Farm as they work together on teams with other outstanding Fellows and Interns. They volunteer in a range of programs that provide relationship-based support to children, adults living with mental illness, seniors, and other vulnerable individuals.  They get to know people, organizations, families, leaders, and others as they live and learn in one of our three wonderful partner communities.

Through this rigorous, intensive, and immersive year of volunteer service and learning, Fellows deepen their understanding of the intricate relational and humanistic aspects of service. They experience and learn a way of engaging, navigating, and working effectively with local communities and local institutions. They develop and hone important leadership and teamwork skills. Finally, they gain a practical appreciation of how their efforts and sacrifice contribute to the health and quality of life of our vulnerable neighbors and to a broader framework of community health.

Deadline: Sunday February 18th, 2024 at 11:59pm CT
