We are a small nonprofit called &Rise where we help women to be the ultimate versions of themselves no matter what adversities they've faced. We are currently seeking unpaid interns to assist our organization with securing grants for additional funding. We are seeking individuals who are comfortable with working independently as well as being motivated self starters.

This is a remote position so you can work from anywhere. We are seeking someone who is willing to work 20-30 hours per week. Please note that this is an unpaid internship but there are many possibilities for growth as our organization is steadily growing. We also would like our interns to be mission driven as our organization helps female survivors of abuse and we hold several free support groups per week and we also offer women in Illinois free counseling.

Mission Statement

To empower, motivate, and inspire women to find the will to succeed and grow by creating the tools and resources they need, removing barriers, and creating connections so that women can become the ultimate versions of themselves.

Description

To empower all women to be the ultimate versions of themselves no matter what adversities they have faced and to change the stigmas around sexual and domestic abuse by offering therapy to survivors to heal and education for prevention.

& Rise offers personal and professional development workshops, women's empowerment events, and weekly support groups for women who are sexual and domestic abuse survivors. Our vision is to provide single mothers who want to go to college, with financial assistance for tuition, supplies, and childcare. Additionally, we plan to provide sexual and domestic abuse survivors with therapy and counseling free of charge so they can overcome the emotional and mental blocks associated with their trauma to be the ultimate versions of themselves!

Our organization believes women thrive on building and sustaining strong connections with one another, some of which assist in forming their futures! In order to help facilitate these bonds, we’re passionate about hosting events that highlight inspirational stories of triumph, encourage meaningful networking, and motivate all that attend to accomplish any and everything they want in life, personally or professionally.
