Internship Description

The GlamourGals Program (GG National) provides a sense of pride and community to our teen volunteer network. GG National organizes and supports volunteer chapters in high school and college who provide companionship and our signature program of complimentary beauty makeovers to elderly residents in senior care. Our impact is two fold: Elderly residents in care feel a renewed sense of community and self-worth. Teen Volunteers gain essential leadership skills demonstrating empathy and compassion through our intergenerational programming.

Interns will learn and implement skills that can directly impact their academic and professional careers. They will gain first-hand knowledge of how a small and growing nonprofit functions by assisting the GlamourGals National staff in marketing, communications, event planning, research, and writing.

Our interns work on a multitude of projects depending on their interests. Projects in the past have included, organizing end of year survey results, creating outline for a fundraising project, creating and organizing social media assets.

We ensure our interns are learning new skills while also honing their strengths.

A favorite feature of the GG internship is the weekly mentor calls with our diverse network of professionals.
