RSA US: Get involved

RSA US Get Involved

Our 1,000 Fellows lead work across the country on important elements of social change. We aim to maximize opportunities for our Fellows to self-organize and define the core activities of the RSA US. 

Delve into our Orientation Guide for an in depth overview of the US Fellowship, and explore how you can get involved through our regional hubs, thematic networks and mentorship program.

Orientation guide

With thanks to DC Ambassador and Global Fellowship Councilor Hosan Lee FRSA, RSA US is proud to present our US Fellowship Orientation Guide - a resource for new, and experienced Fellows alike. 

Regional hubs

RSA US regional hubs are place-based centers of activity where Fellows get together in-person for meet-ups, learning and sharing opportunities, to forge partnerships, and disseminate resources and information. Current RSA US regional hubs include Anchorage, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. Each bolded hub is supported by at least one Ambassador, a Fellow who has taken on the role of community organizer for their area.

Thematic networks

US Fellows-led thematic networks are online communication networks that form around one particular theme or topic of interest. Thematic networks explore, devise, test or pioneer ideas which have the potential to become a powerful source of social change. Each network self-organizes to share resources, promote dialogue, and collaborate across silos, regions, and sectors.

Current networks

Augmented Society Network

We are concerned and excited about the impact technology is having on society and will continue to have in the coming weeks, decades and centuries.

Deliberation Gateway Network

The Deliberation Gateway Network is a first port of call for those curious about deliberative democracy.

Mentorship program

The RSA US Mentorship Program is a match-making mechanism that connects Fellows with particular needs with Fellows who can help them meet those needs. This program is built to connect Fellows in a deep and substantive way, and promotes the sharing of the knowledge, skills, connections, and experiences that Fellows possess. It runs twice a year; one cycle in the spring, and one cycle in the fall.

“This was the biggest highlight of my experience as a Fellow of the RSA so far. The caliber of humans in our network is mind-blowing. And it’s just a microcosm of the RSA. Incredible!” 

"My mentor has been pushing me and has given me the motivation to push myself to do things that I otherwise wouldn’t do. It’s been a long time coming to have space for this kind of introspection.” 

Become an RSA Fellow

The RSA Fellowship is an inclusive global community committed to finding better ways of thinking, acting and delivering change. We invite you to be part of this change.
