Community Organizing Fellow, Washington Housing Alliance Action Fund (QuEST Fellow)

QuEST (Quaker Experiential Service and Training) is a service year fellowship in Seattle, Washington, that provides young adults with professional positions at local nonprofits, an intentional residential community as a cohort, and opportunities for training and reflection. Fellows are matched with one of QuEST's partner agencies for full-time year-long service. The six Fellows live together in a shared house in Seattle's University District and they receive room and board, a personal stipend, transportation and health care funds, and student loan support.

One of the six QuEST placements is as Community Organizing Fellow at the Washington Housing Alliance Action Fund.

The Washington Housing Alliance Action Fund educates voters, promotes smart public policy, and supports candidates who share our vision that all Washington residents have the opportunity to live in safe, healthy, affordable homes, in thriving communities. 
The Community Organizing Fellow supports all levels of our voter engagement program including mobilizing volunteers for Get-Out-The-Vote canvasses (field and phone) in support of housing champions, leading voter registration activities, and advancing our Housing Voter campaign. They will also coordinate closely with the Resident Action Project (RAP) Statewide Organizer to engage residents of low-income housing in organizing, issue education, state and local public policy advocacy, civic engagement, and leadership development.
