The Congressional Hunger Center encourages alumni from the Emerson and Leland fellowships to re-engage in their fellowship community and with CHC. There are many opportunities available for those interested in assisting CHC and the Emerson and Leland Programs.
If you haven’t been in touch with us for a while, please update your contact information, and drop us a line. We’d love to hear what you’re doing and where you are. Maybe there will be current hunger fellows coming to your city soon!
The Emerson and Leland programs hold field and policy training sessions for current fellows. Alumni are often tapped to share their experiences, perspectives, and skills at these trainings. If interested in providing training, please contact Emily Byers (for the Leland Program), or Jon Wogman (for the Emerson Program) using the contact information below.
Alumni often make the best field and policy site supervisors! If you’ve moved into an organization that could provide a good field or policy site experience for a hunger fellow, please consider applying to host a fellow. Information about becoming a host organization is available here, but we’d love to hear from you off line about your ideas (before submitting an application).
The Emerson program annually seeks volunteers to help review applications from potential Emerson Hunger Fellows. If you’d like to be a part of this selections committee, please contact Jon Wogman using the contact information below.
CHC hosts an annual Award Ceremony in D.C. to recognize Congressional Leaders and Alumni who are committed to the fight against hunger domestically and internationally. This event is usually held in the spring, and we are often in need of volunteers to register guests and otherwise help out.
