Center for Great Neighborhoods opens applications for next FreshLo Fellows class

The Center for Great Neighborhoods is now accepting applications for the next class of FreshLo Fellows.

The FreshLo Initiative, funded by The Kresge Foundation, is an effort to promote the use of fresh, local food as a platform for neighborhood revitalization within Covington’s Westside Neighborhood.

Former FreshLo projects range from growing local produce and urban agriculture to educating neighborhood youth about healthy food choices and celebrating the neighborhood’s eclectic cultural cuisine. 

What is the FreshLo Fellowship opportunity?

The Center is providing a 5-week project management opportunity for four Covington community members (12 hours/week). The fellowship pays $11/hr and will take place at The Center for Great Neighborhoods (321 W. MLK Blvd, Covington).

The fellowship will start on February 11, 2019. The final week of the fellowship requires an event or activity for the community hosted by the FreshLo Fellows. Fellows will have the opportunity to manage a collective budget of $800 to implement their event or activity.

The Center for Great Neighborhoods seeks enthusiastic candidates who have an interest in community and a desire to learn new skills. Interested individuals should contact Kareem Simpson at The Center for Great Neighborhoods by Tuesday, January 16, 2019. Call/text at 859.479.2064.

Interviews will be held Wednesday, January 23 through Friday, January 25 between 9 a.m.–1 p.m.
