King County has an exciting fellowship opportunity for those who have a demonstrated commitment to public service.  The Ruth Woo Emerging Leaders Fellowship is named after the revered community leader who was not only a community leader, but a mentor to many elected officials, and she dedicated her life to public service.  In her honor, King County is offering this one year, paid, full-time position.  The person selected for this fellowship will demonstrate their commitment to furthering the achievements of Ruth Woo and others, who embraced empowering and advocating for youth from communities that are economically disadvantaged and historically have lacked opportunities to further their education goals and career aspirations.

Gain firsthand understanding of the branches of government and how they interact with each other, get an overview of how projects, policies, and legislation are created and implemented, understand why civic engagement matters, and build an appreciation for the importance of public service in its many forms from elected officials, to staff, to stakeholders, to clients, and the economy and environment.
