Job Description

About Us

About-Face’s mission is to free girls from the confines of a toxic culture so they can achieve their full potential. This is more important than ever given today’s political climate of bullying, misogyny, and corporate greed — and more important than during any other point in About-Face’s history. Girls are under attack, and being blocked out of their own sense of power and worth. They need tools to fight back.

To fulfill our mission, we reach teen girls and their adult advocates through:

  • Education Into Action workshops and curriculum that teaches teens how to understand, reject, and help change culture that diminishes and disempowers them.
  • Online methods, including our website for teens and social media presence.

Join a focused and fun group of people who are committed to changing our culture for us all.

About You

You are an enthusiastic, innovative initiator. You are deeply passionate — fired up, even — about resisting the toxic sludge of harmful media messaging that damages girls’ idea of their own potential. You don’t always do things the easy way; instead, you do them in ways that are creative and smart and unconventional.

You love to support causes you care about and to ask your circles for help. You are a badass who gets stuff done and can bring in the right people for assistance when needed.

What is the recruitment process?

The About-Face board recruitment process begins by emailing our board recruitment board member (see info below) and continues with a phone call or in-person meeting. If there is a mutual interest, you will meet with a board member and the Executive Director. We bring on new board members twice per year, in January and July.

Who is the About-Face board?

We are a focused and fun group of people who are committed to changing our culture for us all.

What will be expected of me as an About-Face board member?

  • Prepare for, attend (in-person twice per year, via videoconference four times per year), and participate fully in all meetings: every-other-month board meetings, board orientation, monthly committee meetings, and yearly Board Retreat.
  • Vote on board decisions and approvals.
  • Participate in budget development, approval, and financial oversight. Note that Board Members have legal and fiduciary responsibility for the organization.
  • Be an active part of a committee, which will meet once per month and report in to the board before quarterly board meetings.
  • Contribute to the organization by giving and/or raising an agreed-upon amount of funding per year, 15% of which is due upon joining.
  • Be a strong champion for About-Face through social media, media/news outlets, and personal and professional circles, including inviting local contacts to an Intro to About-Face event.
  • Make a one-year commitment to do all of the above.

If you would like to learn more about what Board of Directors membership at a nonprofit entails, check out this excellent article on the National Council of Nonprofits website.

Our board is diverse. About-Face values diversity of race/ethnicity, age, physical ability, and gender diversity. Women of color and members of the LGBTQ+ community are encouraged to apply.

Job Description

Center on Halsted

 The roots of Center on Halsted (COH) date back to the 1970’s with the formation of Gay Horizons as one of the first LGBT organizations in the Midwest. Founded in 1973, Gay Horizons began as a volunteer-run information clearinghouse and meeting place. The Helpline was the first program of Gay Horizons and was completely volunteer run. In 1974, some of the volunteers who were medical students and served clients through the Horizons Clinic decided to form an organization which would provide medical services to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) community. This became Howard Brown Clinic, after Dr. Howard Brown, an Illinois native, founder of the National Gay Task Force (now the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force), and a former New York City Public Health Commissioner who helped change the image of gay men and lesbians in the United States by coming out publicly in 1973. 

By 1976, Gay Horizons had begun to expand its initial focus on social activities and began to provide mental health and social services to those most in need. Horizons Youth Program, which began in 1979, continues to be one of Center on Halsted’s premiere programs.

 By 1981, 234 gay men in the United States had died of a mysterious new disease and the numbers were rising at an alarming rate. In response, Horizons began providing case management and other vital services to HIV+ individuals. To this day, services for HIV prevention and intervention are a part of all Center on Halsted’s programs.

 

In the mid-eighties, Horizons hired its first paid staff, and as it has throughout its existence, continued to respond to the needs of the community with expanded programs and services. Throughout the eighties and nineties, while accumulating an impressive array of accolades and awards, Horizons grew its budget and staff and dramatically increased the number of people served. 

In 2003, Horizons Community Services officially changed its name to Center on Halsted, after an extensive feasibility study, community assessment and a five-year capital campaign that raised over $20 million to create and expand the traditions of the past as the Midwest’s largest LGBTQ social service agency. Today, Center on Halsted is the Midwest's most comprehensive community center dedicated to advancing and securing the health and well-being of the LGBTQ people of Chicagoland. It is located in the heart of Chicago's Lakeview Neighborhood and operates with a 175,000 square foot facility, a $7 million annual budget and 80 staff. More than 1,000 members visit Center on Halsted every day.  In addition, Center on Addison, its LGBTQ senior service center and a 79 unit affordable housing building, are part of the Center on Halsted campus.  Center on Halsted is vibrant and ever changing and growing to meet the needs of community.

Job Description

The National Employment Law Project (NELP) seeks law students for our 2021 summer legal internship program in New York City and Washington DC.

About NELP:

The National Employment Law Project is a non‐profit research and advocacy organization that fights for policies to create good jobs, expand access to work, and strengthen protections and support for workers in low wage industries and the unemployed with a focus on uplifting Black and Latinx workers. We collaborate with national, state and local allies—including worker centers, community groups, immigrant advocacy organizations, unions, faith-based organizations, policy makers and think tanks—to create good jobs and enforce hard-won worker rights.  NELP is one of the country’s leading workers’ rights organizations, developing innovative policy models, conducting research, educating the public and other advocates, supporting worker organizing, and engaging in strategic communications. All of NELP’s work is built upon a strong commitment to eliminating structural racism. To learn more about us, please visit our website at www.nelp.org.

The Internship:

With a staff of lawyers, researchers, and policy experts, NELP works in close partnership with lawyers, grassroots organizing groups, and reformers to test new policy models in the states and cities and translate them to the federal level, and to enforce long-fought legal rights and protections, in order to respond to the key problems of the U.S. labor market in the twenty‐first century. Our work includes:

  • Developing new strategies to improve and ensure enforcement of basic workplace rights in order to combat the growing number of immigrant workers who are not paid the minimum wage or overtime, who endure unsafe workplaces, and who face retaliation when trying to organize;
  • Researching and developing policies to address the rise of outsourcing, the “gig economy,” and contingent work structures (“the fissured economy”) to ensure fair wages and job quality;
  • Developing policies and providing campaign support to raise labor standards at the federal, state, and local levels, with a particular focus on supporting ongoing worker campaigns for $15 an hour and the right to unionize; fighting back against rollbacks at the federal level; and eliminating loopholes and waiver of rights that exclude immigrants, people of color, and contingent and temporary workers from core minimum wage protections.
  • This past summer our interns worked assisting with NELP’s Covid-19 response, including research on issues of the formerly incarcerated and access to unemployment and the ongoing health and safety crisis in the workplace.

Summer legal interns will assist NELP attorneys in all aspects of this work, including:

  • Providing legal, policy, and strategic assistance for campaigns, including drafting legislation, legal research and analyses, and policy briefs;
  • Strategic participation in litigation related to wage and hour and other labor standards issues, including drafting amicus briefs and preparing legal research memos;
  • Drafting reports, op-eds, and community educational materials and engaging in strategic communications.

To Apply:

Interested students should Submit cover letter, resume, and writing sample (if possible, in one PDF document) via http://bit.ly/WorkWithNelp, choosing “Summer Legal Internship” from the “Position” drop-down menu under “Application Information.” Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, but students are encouraged to apply as early as possible.

NELP requires internship candidates to seek funding from their school or other programs and will work with you to secure supplemental funding if needed. Students who are unable to secure funding through their law schools or other programs should contact NELP’s Cathy Ruckelshaus, cruckelshaus@nelp.org for further information. NELP does not permit unpaid internships. NELP encourages students to apply to the Peggy Browning Fund, which offers valuable resources and summer funding to law students interested in workers’ rights.

NELP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and an equal opportunity, fair chance, affirmative action employer, committed to building a diverse and inclusive workforce.  All qualified applicants will be considered without regard to race, color, creed, national origin, sex, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, military status, prior record of arrest or conviction, citizenship status, current employment status, or caregiver status.
