Loretto launches new Justice Fellowship Program
Loretto’s leadership has approved the Loretto Justice Fellowship as the successor to the Loretto Volunteer Program. The Loretto Justice Fellowship begins its pilot year in El Paso in 2023 in partnership with the School of Social Work at the University of Texas-El Paso (UTEP), the Law School Preparation Institute at UTEP and local social justice organizations. The program will provide students with paid social justice internships, intentional community programming and holistic support for their personal and professional journeys in justice.
The Loretto Justice Fellowship program carries forward much of what was transformative about the Volunteer Program — connection in community; deep learning from and meaningful participation in social justice work experiences; and mutual exchange and reciprocity between emerging social justice leaders and the Loretto Community around key mission work priorities. Our new model focuses these transformative efforts within communities: investing in, partnering with and empowering pre-professionals in local communities on their justice journeys in partnership with local institutions and organizations.
