Internships & Volunteering

Our volunteers and interns are composed almost entirely of young adult girls 18-27 years old, gender-fluid persons, & birthing people of color. We represent the demographic we serve, and are therefore best-positioned to understand the needs of our constituents. As an organization, we are led entirely by young activists, Black women/girls, non-binary, gender-fluid and birthing persons fighting for change in their own communities. We were founded because we acknowledged the present day and historical gaps in the philanthropic system to fund spaces led by BIPOC leaders positioned to respond to grassroot community groups on the ground who are supporting sustainable efforts for girls, gender-fluid youth and birthing persons. Anyone of any identity or age is welcome to volunteer or intern at the organization. Most internships run in 4, 6 and 9 month cycles and volunteers work on short and long term projects based on their interest. If you would like to learn more or sign up please contact us.

Working With GFG

Our group works in various subteams instead of traditional departments. Teams work together on organization projects and to push the mission forward. Teams include community members & youth as advisory leads and GFG representatives. GFG uses a constituency-led approach and engages in weekly circle meetings with our team where we discuss decisions that need to be made and plan as a group. During the week, subteams meet and replicate this model within their work. We seek to build an anti-oppressive workplace that is often a safe haven and breath of fresh air from the toxic spaces many of our colleagues have endured in their careers.  Therefore, we model restitution, restorative and collaborative practices in our daily work. Our teams, composed of our diverse staff, take the lead in decisions and manage projects in partnership with their peers.   We use collaborative cross-groups to manage the work and find this model to be more sustainable rather than the traditional top down hierarchical approach adopted by most corporations and in alignment with white supremist culture. As we grow, we want to ensure we can allow for growth measures that create structure but continue to center equity and shared power practices. We will do this by keeping smaller working cross groups intact that can work on and make decisions about targeted projects and issues and remain collaborative as we scale.  See notices/updates about opportunities to work with us on Idealist and LinkedIn
