GIV Fellowship Accepting Applications through May

Monday, April 5, 2021

The GIV Fellowship is a 15-week foundation internship program. Youth fellows split their time between learning about philanthropy as a cohort and being embedded in host foundations to gain hands-on experience in the sector. Through this process, we seek to achieve the following objectives:

  •  Provide opportunities for youth to discover and explore potential careers in the philanthropic and nonprofit fields;
  •  Improve the ability of the philanthropic sector to meet community needs by including youth voice, expertise, and wisdom in foundation strategies; and
  •  Develop a pipeline for youth from communities underrepresented in philanthropy to enter the field.

The 2021 Fellowship will be primarily remote and run from August 23 – December 3. Fellows will be paid $17/hour for 8 hours/week over the 15-week program. Approximately half of the hours will be scheduled meetings and half will be flexible work hours for participants to fit into their existing work and/or school schedules.

Pairs of fellows will be placed at a host foundation based on location and interest. 2021 participating foundations include:

  • AJL Foundation
  • Animal Assistance Foundation
  • Caring for Colorado Foundation
  • Colorado Health Foundation
  • Craig-Scheckman Family Foundation
  • Delta Dental of Colorado Foundation
  • Gary Community Investments
  • Gates Family Foundation
  • Johnson Family Foundation
  • Kenneth King Foundation
  • Rocky Mountain Health Foundation
  • RootEd

Individuals meeting the following eligibility requirements are encouraged to apply:

  • Passionate about making the world a better place
  • Live in Colorado
  • Have employment authorization or are a US Citizen
  • Between the ages of 18-24 at any period during the fellowship (8/23/21 – 12/3/21)
