The Neighbors in Residence (NiR) Program is a paid, semester-long fellowship for New Haven residents, change-makers, and leaders with lived experience to engage, educate, and grow within the Yale community.
Selected fellows will work alongside Dwight Hall at Yale and the Tsai Center for Innovative Thinking at Yale (CITY) to advance social justice and service in New Haven. During the program, fellows will focus on their own unique project and provide mentorship to students launching social justice initiatives. By the program’s end, NiR’s will have a clear path to continuing their impactful community work and be better connected into the Yale community. Through the program, fellows will gain access to a variety of Yale resources to catalyze their work in the community while uplifting the structures, histories, institutions, and traditions that make up New Haven.
Applications and nominations are due January 17.
