The Times Square Fellows Program provides exceptional students or recent graduates interested in public service and urban issues with the opportunity to work within one of the country’s most respected and high-profile non-profits. Fellowships are paid and are either full time for the summer or part-time during the school year for two semesters. Areas of focus include planning, policy and design, public space management, events and programming, and communications and government affairs. Times Square Fellows are assigned to a department to assist with and advance major projects or initiatives. In addition, a core part of the program is regular professional development programming, which includes lunches and talks with senior Alliance staff as well as community, civic and governmental leaders.
The Alliance welcomes the 2013 summer class of Times Square Fellows.
