BILL LEVITT FELLOWSHIP.
Mayor Levitt helped found Friends of Alta (originally The Alta Defense Fund) in 1981. Mayor Levitt’s long-standing advisory role with Friends of Alta helped guide the organization to protect the environment of Alta, while still allowing supportive economic activity such as skiing, hiking and recreating in and around Alta. This fellowship is an opportunity for selected individuals to work with our Executive Director for three to nine months. The fellowship will focus on how Mayor Levitt’s standards of excellence, intelligence and integrity in public process, and Friends of Alta’s conservation efforts can work together to protect Alta’s environment and unique character. Each fellowship opportunity will be unique and is open to students or individuals wishing to further their knowledge and experience in conservation, local government, and dynamic communities.
Fellowship tasks may involve the following:
