Fellows Alumni Video Testimonial

Instructions for Alumni Fellows Video:  For one of our first Alumni Fellows’ projects, we are hoping that you all will make videos (similar to something that you would see on YouTube, TikTok, or in an Instagram story) to offer advice and insight on your own experiences as CEEP Fellows. We intend for these videos to be fun, but also informational for helping our current Fellows with their civic-engagement projects.  For many of our Fellows this may be the first time that they have engaged in projects ranging from voter registration to working with different offices on campus, so any guidance or advice you can offer will go a long way in helping them out. Questions and completed videos should be sent to the National Fellowship Director, Courtney Cochran at courtney@campuselect.org. Thanks for your time and we hope you have fun with this!
