Job Description

Queer Joy Collective Internship Program 2024

 

REMOTE OPPORTUNITY

 

Join us for our next cohort of Queer Joy Collective Interns!

 

Mission

Queer Joy Collective's work centers on community-based resilience building through positive expression. Rather than dismantling our oppression through reactionary methods, our organization combats discrimination through transformative actions which lead to greater social change. Within a broader network of organizations dedicated to queer liberation, QJC serves as the emotional undercurrent propelling these efforts. Our programs include our Letter Club, Joy Archive, Internship Program, Art Contests, and more.

 

Internship Overview:

Our internship program will run for four months, starting in the beginning of February and concluding in the end of May. During this period, you'll have the opportunity to work closely with the founders, gain valuable experience, and contribute to our mission of spreading Queer Joy.

 

Timeline

Application Deadline: January 15th

Interviews: January 15th-January 26th

Welcome/Onboarding Training: First week of February

 

Time Commitment

Up to 10 hours per week.

 

Internship Eligibility

 

As an organization committed to diversity and inclusivity, we highly encourage applications from BIPOC, neurodivergent, formerly incarcerated, those from low-income backgrounds, and other marginalized communities.

 

Support and Benefits

While this is an unpaid internship opportunity, we are committed to making it a mutually beneficial experience. Throughout the internship, you will receive mentorship from our founders, access to educational and career development resources, and the opportunity to expand your network of queer working professionals. Additionally, you'll be given a free membership to our Letter Subscription for the duration of your internship. Upon successful completion of the internship, you'll receive a Certificate of Completion, LinkedIn Endorsements from both founders, and a Letter of Recommendation upon request. We are also happy to assist with any necessary paperwork for academic credit.

Application Process

 

To apply, submit your resume, a work sample, and a brief response to our supplemental questions. Interviews will be conducted via Zoom, and successful applicants will receive a decision within a week.

About Los Angeles LGBT Center

The Los Angeles LGBT Center is the world’s largest LGBT organization of any kind. In 10 locations across Los Angeles, the Center’s nearly 800 employees and hundreds of volunteers offer programs, services, and global advocacy that span four broad categories: Health, Social Services and Housing, Culture and Education, and Leadership and Advocacy. The Center is an unstoppable force in the fight against bigotry and the struggle to build a better world.

The Center’s flagship Anita May Rosenstein Campus in the heart of Hollywood offers housing, legal, social, cultural, and educational services, with unique programs for seniors, families, youth, and the transgender community. Youth services include emergency, transitional, and independent housing, a drop-in center, and comprehensive education and employment programs. Senior services include more than 200 affordable apartments, food assistance, employment support, educational and recreational programming, and outreach.  

A Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) since 2013, the Center’s healthcare services include one of the first medical programs for people living with HIV and AIDS; HIV and STI testing; a full range of PrEP and PEP services; as well as HIV education, prevention, and outreach programs. The Center also provides comprehensive healthcare to the transgender community, gynecological and pelvic care, fertility, hormone balancing, and well-woman care. Additionally, the Center operates a full-service pharmacy.

The Center fights to advance civil rights and freedoms for LGBTQ people domestically and internationally through education, advocacy, and community organizing. They advocate for policies and funding that advance the health and wellness of the diverse LGBTQ community. To build a stronger LGBTQ community, they provide leadership development programs for activists and technical assistance for LGBTQ organizations everywhere.

A team of staff and volunteer attorneys, law students, and paralegals serve the legal needs of LGBTQ people with a special focus on survivors of violence, undocumented immigrants, the transgender community, and youth. They also provide cultural competency trainings and workshops for institutions and other providers.

 

A full slate of cultural and educational programming is offered at The Village at Ed Gould Plaza. The facility includes a 200-seat theater, a smaller black-box theater, an art gallery, and rooms for meetings and classes.

 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Center continued to provide essential first-responder services where possible, shifted programs to virtual, and developed new programs such as the Pride Pantry food bank. Last year, in response to the nationwide MPX (monkeypox) crisis, the Center led vaccination and testing efforts in Los Angeles and collaborated with local and national organizations for increased state and federal funding to combat the public health emergency.

Chief Operating Officer

 

Sacramento LGBT Community Center

 

About the Sacramento LGBT Community Center

 

In 1978, nine years after the historic Stonewall Riots, the Center was first incorporated as a special assistance program called the Lambda Community Fund. For more than 30 years, the Center operated almost entirely on the generosity of community volunteers who offered assistance to those in need and a place to find community. Over the last decade, the Center developed more robust programs and services to meet those needs, hired professional staff, and engaged significant public and private funding to support the community.

 

Now, the Sacramento LGBT Community Center has become one of the region’s largest nonprofits, reaching more LGBTQ+ people than any organization in Northern California. Operating in four locations, the Center provides programs and services spanning three broad categories: Health and Wellness, Advocacy, and Community Building.

 

Health and wellness services include HIV/STD Testing and Prevention, PrEP Navigation, Counseling Services, Sexual Health Education, Gender Affirming Care Services, Harm Reduction, Medication Assisted Treatment navigation (MAT), Support Groups, and more.

 

The Center’s Q-Spot Youth Program offers a brave space for youth ages 13-24 to receive social and emotional support through mental health respite, peer mentorship, and support groups. The Q-Spot also offers life skills workshops, youth-centered advocacy, and events such as Q-Prom.

 

The Center’s housing services include homelessness prevention, a 14-bed Short-term Transitional Emergency Program (STEP) 90-day low-barrier youth shelter, and a six-bed Transitional Living Program (TLP) where clients can stay for up to 24 months as they prepare for independent self-reliant living, and transition to more permanent housing. Both programs serve 18–24-year-old youth and include case management, housing, meals, clothing, transportation assistance, and access to wrap-around services including counseling, education and employment assistance, life skills workshops, and the establishment of a support system that can be maintained upon exiting the program.

 

In addition to providing a safe haven, the Center serves as an advocate for equity and social justice. Advocacy programs include legal aid through community partnerships, support services for community members who have been victims of bias or hate-related incidents, an outreach and training institute, Queer Voices (a performance-based ensemble), and public policy and community organizing.

 

The Center is host to various community-building initiatives including the annual Sacramento Pride Festival & March, Q-Prom (a fun-filled evening for LGBTQ+ youth and allies), and Mama’s Makin’ Bacon Drag Brunch (the largest drag brunch extravaganza in Sacramento), Chosen Family Feast (a shared community meal on Thanksgiving), World Aids Day, and dozens of others throughout the year.

About The San Diego LGBT Community Center (The Center)

 

Established as a community non-profit in 1972, the mission of The Center is to enhance and sustain the health and well-being of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, transgender, nonbinary, immigrant, and HIV communities for the betterment of our entire San Diego region. Our vision is to create a Center and Center culture where every person feels and knows that they are welcomed, valued, and supported.

 

As the beacon for our regional LGBTQ community, we actively recommit to being

a more vibrant, bold, innovative, safe, and modern center each day than the day before. The Center provides advocacy and critical health and social support services to support our community members through all stages of life, focusing on our deeply held values of equity, social justice, and client-centered, trauma-informed care.

 

The San Diego Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community Center, Inc., (d.b.a., The Center) is one of the largest and most vibrant LGBTQ community centers in the nation with eight sites across San Diego County. Functioning as the San Diego LGBTQ community’s anchor organization, The Center is led by a 12-member Board of Directors, employs 115 paid staff, and utilizes more than 1,200 community volunteers to achieve its twin goals of promoting LGBTQ health/wellness and human rights. The Center is mission-driven to provide targeted programs and services to the full diversity of San Diego’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, transgender, nonbinary, immigrant, and HIV communities for the betterment of our entire San Diego region. The Center provides more than 80,000 direct service visits annually and through its events, activities, and advocacy, touches the lives of thousands more.

 

The Center is a leader in working toward solving San Diego’s housing crisis, especially as it affects our LGBTQ community. In the last few years, The Center has expanded our housing programs and resources from one program – the Sunburst Youth Housing Project, a 23-unit building specifically for youth experiencing homelessness – to a continuum of services. These programs include North Park Senior Apartments, in partnership with Community Housing Works; Karibu, a permanent supportive housing program for individuals, couples, and families; LGBTQ Safe S.T.A.Y., an overnight emergency housing program for transitional age youth; a Host Home program; a Family Reunification program; Rental Assistance and Homelessness Prevention & Diversion services; and Project Compassion, an action-based program that provides direct supportive resources for those experiencing homelessness.

Through advocacy, civic engagement, and coalition building, The Center works to promote LGBTQ health and wellness, fight anti-Black racism, and advance human rights by amplifying the voices of families and community members who remain most marginalized— low-income residents, communities of color, immigrants, and refugees. A core value of The Center is that the health and wellness of our community cannot thrive without strong advocacy and community power.

 

San Diego LGBT Community Center is a tax-exempt, 501(c)3 public charity with approximately $33 million in assets and an annual revenue of $15 million.

FULL-TIME JOB VACANCY
DIRECTOR
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Rights Program
Multiple Office Locations Considered
Application Deadline: November 12, 2023

The Organization

Human Rights Watch (HRW) is an international human rights research and advocacy organization known for its in-depth investigations, its incisive and timely reporting, its innovative and high-profile advocacy campaigns, and its success in changing the human rights-related policies and practices of influential governments and international institutions. We’re comprised of over 600 staff in more than 50 countries.

Our mission is as urgent as it has ever been, and it faces complex new challenges. We must contend with the failures of governments to meet their obligations on water, land, education, and food. We must respond to conflict and crisis on an extraordinary scale, and we must confront the persistence of repression around the world. Climate change, the resurgence of authoritarian populism, rapidly advancing technologies, and the effects of deep inequality all compound these threats to rights. Innovation, efficiency, and diversity are critical to our success in meeting these challenges, and to delivering sustained impact. 

The Opportunity

Human Rights Watch is seeking a human rights professional to lead its Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Rights Program, one of HRW’s eight thematic research and advocacy programs, made up of 9 staff.

The LGBT Rights Program defends and promotes the rights of LGBT people globally. Focal areas include violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, criminalization of same-sex conduct, restrictions on freedoms of expression and association, abuses in medical settings, and socio-economic rights including access to education, healthcare, and employment.

The successful candidate will be a thoughtful, collaborative, and strategic leader with deep knowledge and experience working on a diverse range of human rights issues related to LGBT rights. The Director will be a persuasive advocate in the field, and have an impressive track record of driving change, a deep commitment to coalition building and equitable partnerships, and a strategic vision for HRW’s contribution to the global LGBT rights movement.

The Director will be an experienced manager and demonstrate the ability and commitment to foster the safety and resilience of staff, to promote diversity and inclusion, to support sustainability of the organization, to be an effective communicator, to provide appropriate and timely feedback on staff performance, to build consensus with staff around key challenges and new research and advocacy approaches, and to ensure the highest research standards in a culture of learning, trust, teamwork, and collaboration

The Director will represent the organization in national, regional, and international media on LGBT human rights issues; will advocate with high-level officials from governments, companies, the United Nations, and other regional and international bodies; will foster and strengthen partnerships with other human rights and civil society organizations, particularly local partners; and will lead our LGBT-related collaborations in the human rights movement. 

The position will be based in any of HRW’s global offices. The Director will report to a Deputy Program Director in the Program Office and will lead a team of researchers / advocates based in various locations. We aim to be as flexible and supportive as possible in both the recruitment for and onboarding of this position. 

Responsibilities

1. Develop strategies, set programmatic priorities, and plan and execute research and advocacy to best defend and advance LGBT rights as human rights globally;
