Internships

For $3,300, you can underwrite the cost of an internship for one semester. This includes a mini-grant for the intern as well as our training and support costs.

Already passionate about social justice issues, OVM interns develop the skills needed to train and engage residents around any issue. Through your sponsorship, you are helping to equip and prepare the next generation of social justice advocacy leaders.

Upcoming Events

Event sponsorships vary widely depending on the type and size of the event, but typically range between $1,000 and $1,500.

We conduct community forums, block parties, grassroots advocacy trainings, voter registration drives and other community service activities. Through these events, we inform, engage, and empower residents in underrepresented Maryland communities to advocate for themselves around issues important to them.

Fellowships

For $13,800, you can underwrite the cost of an OVM Fellowship for one year. This includes a grant to the Fellow as well as direct and indirect expenses for their work.

Fellows help prepare our interns to become leaders by sharing their community organizing, grassroots advocacy, digital organizing, and training expertise. Working part-time, they serve as both trainers and mentors.
