Rainbow Labs is a nonprofit with a mission to create a safe and supportive environment where Queer and Gender Non-Conforming Youth (QGNC) can explore pathways to purposeful lives. We’re launching a new kind of youth mentoring program for QGNC youth by QGNC youth. Youth aged 12-18 have access to weekly individual and group mentoring activities. Activities are conducted by youth development professionals and mentors both virtually and in person.
Are you interested in gaining professional experience, empowering communities, and making a lasting difference? Join The Rainbow Labs team for a 9-week Summer Internship- AmeriCorps VISTA! In partnership with schools and after school programs cross Los Angeles, Rainbow Labs will offer a free Mentoring program called “One Bold Summer” for LGBTQ+ youth aged 12-18. Operations Associate- Vista service will start June 14 and will run to August 20. VISTA’s will be expected to work 30-35 hours per week and will work from home about 75% of the time.
The Operations Associate VISTA will be an essential member of the team for this growing nonprofit organization. The VISTA will support the program team to streamline summer programming and create new and innovate ways to engage youth, community members, and potential partners.
The Operations Associate- VISTA is funded by the Corporations for National and Community Service, Up2Us Sports, and will serve within the AmeriCorps VISTA program. The Up2Us Sports VISTA project builds the capacity of host-site organizations working to end the cycle of poverty through intentional youth sports and education programming. The Up2Us Sports VISTA Summer Associates will be placed at Rainbow Labs to streamline a series of after-school programming (both in person and online) seeking to mentor and support underserved Queer & Gender non-conforming youth ages 13-17. Each VISTA member makes a 9-week, full-time commitment to serve on a specific project at a nonprofit organization or public agency. To learn more about the AmeriCorps program visit americorps.gov.
