Are you an Innovator? Entrepreneur? Ambitious? Willing to throw yourself in the deep end and really learn? Eager to collaborate radically? Passionate about integration and equality? Want to effect positive social change? Then you may be interested in becoming a BlueFire Fellow, or joining BlueFire as a volunteer!

Come join us on Thursday 15th March, at 6.30pm (registration from 6pm) for an interactive and informative evening about the opportunities available at BlueFire.

On the night you will:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
BLUEFIRE FELLOWSHIP:
The BlueFire Fellowship is a social leadership, action based, learning programme for 18 – 30 year olds; providing an opportunity for young adults to unleash their leadership and changemaker ability.

Throughout this 9-month programme, participants will collaborate together to develop upon existing skills & build new ones; increase awareness of global and local challenges; explore their role as social innovators; and become meaningful changemakers.

During your time as a fellow you will be involved in delivering BlueFire’s 2018 services & programmes in the community, as part of one of 4 teams – Community Collaboration, Marketing, Dublinternational Festival, or Business Development. Learn about all 4 teams at http://bluefiredublin.ie/our-programmes/bluefire-fellowship-teams

As a BlueFire fellow, you will also get to create your own project in the community - from concept, through to implementation.

WHY PARTICIPATE:
By the end of the programme you will have built key leadership, entrepreneurial and changemaking skills, giving you the capacity to affect change in a wide array of settings, including starting your own social enterprise. You will also:

• Have run your own project, from concept to implementation, with the option to continue the project beyond the programme independently or in partnership with BlueFire.
• Be part of our lifelong community of people passionate about cultural integration, with access to our network of mentors, advisers, business leaders and social innovators.
• Unleash your full changemaker potential through the hands on experience of delivering BlueFire’s programmes, establishing & delivering your own project, participating in our workshops & training and reflecting and learning with and from your fellow participants.
