As a volunteer organization that builds relationships across divided communities, we welcome dedicated individuals who share our values. We are committed to a dialogic and consensus-based collaborative approach. Volunteers should be open to an intensive and non-conventional internship experience. A willingness to work on a variety of projects, assist with public programs, and attend to daily maintenance of the space, is essential. We look forward to working with you!

As Slought is a primarily volunteer driven organization, we recognize that applicants may be pursuing other opportunities and maintaining other jobs. Before applying, consider how you will balance your involvement in Slought with your other commitments and financial needs.

Because our projects are shaped by the individuals involved in them and the trust that develops over time, it is crucial that applicants agree to commit to the full term of their fellowship before moving onto other positions.
