Description

Located in a multi-media facility we are looking for interns and/or professionals with experience to partner with and can barter our space and resources for your skills and abilities for a great cause with potential income generating opportunities for the right candidate(s).

The Girls Empowerment Movement (GEM), Inc. is a 501( C)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring, encouraging, and empowering girls and women of color from 14-21 years old to take full advantage of their talents, academic interests, career pursuits, and potential for healthy relationships.

We help girls believe in their self-worth, realize their potential for greatness, embrace their uniqueness, and prepare them to lead successful, independent, and fulfilling lives. At the end of the day, we want to be part of a system that helps to equip girls with the necessary skills to make healthy and positive choices in their lives that will ultimately and eventually empower communities and future generations beyond GEM’s scope.

We have developed business models that are designed to promote collaboration, cooperation, and coordination among nonprofit organizations that deliver high quality services, supports and resources to girls and women in the District of Columbia. GEM, Inc is also launching an initiative for boys and men this year. This is an exciting time to join our organization as we are restructuring and every internship could potentially lead to employment opportunities.

This is a dynamic opportunity to get a diverse range of experience and network with various government agencies, foundations, nonprofits, corporate partners, community groups, and creative professionals. There is extensive writing involved, research, and direct interaction with clients and participants. We are a progressive organization interested in partnering with people that are passionate about pursuing their dreams and bring that energy and spirit into the organization.
