What's an Opportunity Board?
Our Opportunity Board is the place where we share scholarships, members-only contests, internships, grants, and other opportunities to help you make your dreams a reality. To have full access to our opportunity board, you'll need to join the club and download our community app. Below are a few of the opportunities currently available to Cocoon Club members:
Write to Lead Internship
Write to Lead is a paid 10-month internship program for high school girls in Newark, NJ and Gary, Indiana. During the internship, girls set and achieve personalized learning goals, create content for our Cocoon Club, and author our annual Leadership Journal. Designed as a tool for classrooms and mentoring groups, our Leadership Journal includes inspiring short stories, provocative discussion questions and creative writing exercises that help girls develop their leadership, literacy, and social-emotional skills. Internship applications will open Monday, May 3, 2021 and will be due by July 2, 2021.
Community Ambassadors Internship
Our Cocoon Club community now includes hundreds of women and girls! We are thrilled about the growth and are looking for young women in 8th grade, high school, and college to serve as Community Ambassadors for the 2021-22 school year. As a Community Ambassador, you'll participate in a 10-month internship where you'll co-lead community projects and become a peer mentor to middle and high school girls in the Cocoon Club—welcoming them to our community, answering their questions, and facilitating a monthly peer mentoring session. Internship applications will open Monday, May 3, 2021 and will be due by July 2, 2021.
