You're invited to join the Host Fellowship

The Host Fellowship is an 18 month programme of support to grow a Huddle of your own design. A Huddle is a purposeful peer group that tackles a learning journey together. Your Huddle might be in your local area or online, and around a theme you really care about.

As a licensed Host, you can grow your own micro-venture, backed and supported by the Huddlecraft team and our community of Hosts who have gone before you.

Representing an organisation? Want to train an employee to host Huddles internally? Get in touch via hello@huddlecraft.com for a chat about how this can work for your organisation.

What our Hosts say:

Ella Reynolds

“I feel like I’ve grown in unexpected ways. The Host Fellowship provided me with a way to navigate the overwhelming uncertainty I was facing. I uncovered a tenacity that I didn’t know I had. I feel more resilient as a result. If you’re considering it seriously, you should definitely just take the plunge.”

Luis Ferreira

“JOIN! This was one of the most transformative and profound experiences I’ve had so far in my journey as an entrepreneur and educator. Huddlecraft’s way of doing things is charming. I’ve learnt a lot about how to create powerful experiences. The Huddlecraft toolkit and approach was essential.”

Jahnvi Singh

“The Host Fellowship grows your practice as a facilitator and your network of peers. You will earn back the investment you make in more ways than you can imagine. Since the fellowship I've joined the RSA, managing the scaling of Cities of Learning programme. I’m taking a peer-led approach to bring together stakeholders from different cities.”

In a nutshell:

  • Dates: The fellowship will run between October 2022 - March 2024. The deadline for applications is Tuesday 16th August 2022.

  • Location: The fellowship is remote, with sessions taking place on Zoom. We welcome applications from all locations.

  • Fees: The fee you pay depends on your situation. There are payment plans and bursaries available. Find out how much you’d pay in the 'practicalities' section.

  • Income Potential: You'll design a cost structure that makes sense for your Huddle and the audience you want to work with. Depending on your pricing structure you could yield between £5k - £18k.

  • Abundancy Fund: We have a fund that you can access to help you provide bursaries to Huddle participants that meet bursary criteria. You may be able to access up to £1500.

The Host Fellowship includes:

Why host?

Hosting a Huddle can be a life-and-work-changing experience, for you as the Host, and for your participants.

You might be an aspiring or experienced facilitator, a community organiser, a coach, a learning designer, or a real people person. You might want to connect freelancers navigating the challenges of self-employment, men of all ages exploring masculinity, or activists working for change - you name it.

You bring your ideas and we’ll bring the resources, community and web of support to help you make it happen.

Please note: we've recently rebranded as Huddlecraft, and are in the process of updating our content.

"Hosting has been just the beginning of a brilliant adventure. I've found magnificent collaborators, made wonderful friends and earned over £20k as a result."

– David Heinemann, Huddle Host

You might be:

  • A freelancer looking to add another income stream or side project to your portfolio
  • A community enthusiast keen to establish connections, creativity or resilience in your local area
  • A designer wanting to craft a live experience for participants
  • An activist wanting to mobilise people around an important goal or theme
  • Part of an organisation that would like to create an incredible internal learning culture
  • A coach looking to develop your practice in a peer group setting
  • A retiree searching for a mind expanding challenge
  • A surprise we haven’t imagined yet

Do it to:

  • Grow your capability as a ‘maker-happener’, able to turn a vision into reality
  • Start a ‘micro-venture’ with proven social value and recurring income potential
  • Directly see your impact: watch people grow and create in unexpected ways and play a meaningful role in that growth
  • Establish a valuable learning community where you live or work. Develop your network of relationships.
  • Deepen your understanding and experience of huddlecraft, and applying the power of peer-led approaches
  • Expand your facilitator range and skill-set, play with new approaches and develop your style
  • Develop your resilience and your ability to lead in a time of uncertainty
  • Boost your career by multiplying the value you can bring to organisations and collaborators

What we're growing

We are a platform for people to create, host and join Huddles, and we are growing an ‘ecosystem’ of support for peer-led learning and organising.

Our North Star is a future regenerative civilisation. So we act in support of a necessary transition to an economy (and consciousness) that will create this future. By placing co-learner relationships at the heart of our model, we practice living in our preferred future by learning together (co-operatively and locally) in the present.

We aim to uproot some of the assumptions that have, for too long, sat at the heart of learning. In their place we plant approaches that will help us face the steep, collective learning curves ahead.

Read more about us

We support a shift:

From

A bias towards a teacher-student model, in which students receive knowledge from experts.

To

A belief in an abundant yet under-utilised resource for adult development: peers.

From

A focus on developing the market value of the individual.

To

A focus on developing the whole person and their ability to thrive (including but not exclusively their livelihood).

From

A focus on fostering outer development, status and material gain.

To

A focus on harmony between outer and inner development.

From

Centralised knowledge, power and resources.

To

Distributed knowledge, power and resources.

From

Upholding and propagating the status quo.

To

Being designed to adapt, continually evolving in response to emerging needs.

"I've grown my confidence as a  'maker-happener'. I've built something that had only been tried in London into a real-life thing in Birmingham. I've loved making connections with like minded souls where I live."

- Anneka Deva

"There’s a real sense of network and community, particularly between the Hosts. They are all so warm and caring, deep, analytical and creative."

- Anna Garlands

"Coming together with the other Huddlecraft Hosts gave me so much invaluable support and another peer group to share, learn and grow with."

- Matt McStravick

"Co-designing and facilitating this process has deepened my relational practice in a myriad of ways. Inviting people in, welcoming them, setting the scene, co-creating the culture,  nurturing the slow growing connections into something of strength and resilience."

- Ellie Osborne

"Hosting really breaks down the barriers of what it means to be a facilitator. The idea is not that you are power over - you are power with."

- Sarah Adefehinti

Fees

Huddlecraft is a social business. We want to be transparent about how we make and spend our money.

The fee structure for the Host Fellowship is designed to cover all the cost involved in making it happen, whilst keeping it as accessible as we possibly can for people with a range of circumstances. We take inclusion very seriously, both for our Hosts and their Huddle participants.

As a licensed Host, you keep your income from the Huddle, so your Fellowship fee is an investment in your ‘micro-venture’. Your Huddle might earn between £5k - £18k depending on your price structure, your audience and your recruitment efforts.

We know it might not be possible for you to stump the full fee upfront, so we offer monthly payments with 0% interest.
