Who we are: Girl Rising is a powerful feature film and a global action campaign for girls' education. The film spotlights the true stories of extraordinary girls around the world, striving beyond circumstance and overcoming impossible odds to reach their dreams. Girl Rising promotes a powerful truth: educating girls in the developing world can transform families, communities, and entire countries—and break the cycle of poverty in just one generation.
The Girl Rising ENGAGE Interns will work closely with the Girl Rising ENGAGE Team in the NYC office to provide support to Girl Rising's USAID-funded project in India, Nigeria, and DRC.

You will work in a fast-paced, energetic environment with passionate and creative people.
