Advocate Fellowship

Create Opportunity & Build the Next Generation of Fire Service Leaders

We encourage you to submit to be an Everyone Goes Home® Advocate Fellowship mentor. We are looking for emergent leaders from departments, who are eager to help develop the next generation of Advocates. The Fellowship program is a structured mutli-year virtual and/or in-person mentorship experience with one or more fire, rescue, or fire protection disciplines that will result in mutually beneficial experiences for individuals and organizations. If selected, you will be matched with a fire service organization which can utilize the skills you presently have and will impart advanced knowledge you can only obtain through hand-and minds on experience. You will be intellectually challenged and regarded with the riches of new contacts and the knowledge that you have contributed mightily to your host organization.
