Seeking a career that makes the world a better place and pays well?
The GIV Fellowship places young adults (18-24) across Colorado in an internship with grant-making foundations. The program is designed for individuals from underrepresented communities in the philanthropic sector to 1) gain experience in the field, and 2) provide community & youth insight into foundation operations.
Fellows will split their time between being together in a cohort with YouthRoots to learn the basics of philanthropy and being placed in an internship with a host foundation located in the Metro Denver area.
Participants will be paid $17/hour for 30 hours per week (10 hours with cohort, 20 hours with foundations) for 8 weeks in Summer 2022 (6/13-8/5).
Be a part of the movement to increase representation in philanthropy. Applications are due February 24, 2022. Learn more and apply online at youthroots.org/GIV
Founded in 2010 by Lacey Books, YouthRoots has gained esteem and recognition as our impact has grown. We’ve expanded from serving 15 students a year in Denver, Colorado to 150 students across three states. In addition to our front-range YouthBoards that are direct programming of YouthRoots, we serve additional communities though partnerships with community foundations in Boulder, CO, Pueblo, CO, Yellow Springs, OH and Sioux Falls, SD.
YouthRoots participants have increased the funding pool for community nonprofits by raising and granting over $315,000. Additionally, participants develop tangible skills to bring their big ideas to life and improve their communities.
