WORK WITH US
at the Forefront works to elevate the voices of Black women to address the intersectional challenges our communities face. Our global collective of Black women with expertise in public health, education, human rights (and much more) come together to ensure Black women are drivers of our own stories and narratives and to support organizations and institutions to do the same. We value the fresh perspectives that can only diversify the work we can achieve with at the Forefront. We strongly encourage Black women of African descent to apply for the open positions.
Our work with at the Forefront is run by volunteers committed to our guiding frameworks. Due to our commitment to engaging with Black women across the diaspora, positions can be conducted remotely.
Candidates with commiserative work experience are welcome to apply without a college/university degree.
ATF is committed to ensuring diversity and inclusion as we expand our team. We strongly encourage women and non-binary people with diverse socioeconomic backgrounds, women and non-binary people with disabilities, women and non-binary people living in rural and marginalised communities, women and non-binary people from indigenous/ethnic minority groups, and women and non-binary people of all ages to apply.
BRIGHT YOUTH COORDINATOR
At the Forefront (ATF) is currently seeking a part-time Youth Coordinator for our Black girl youth-centered initiative, Black girls Influence Globally, Heal, and Thrive (BRIGHT). As we recognise the systemic race and gender disparities globally that have only been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are long overdue dialogue on the intersectional challenges Black people face. Oftentimes, spaces for dialogue drown out the voices of those most closely affected by the issues but, with the BRIGHT’s focus on Black girls from the US and Sub-Saharan Africa, we aim to give them an opportunity to spearhead the discussions they want to have on the issues they are most concerned about with peers and mentors alike.
In collaboration with the BRIGHT and ATF leadership, the Program Coordinators will ensure effective project coordination and implementation, monitoring and evaluation, quality assurance and accountability of the project. The BRIGHT Program Coordinators will work closely with, and should have experience working with, at-risk youth (particularly adolescent girls):
Facing mental health challenges,
From the LGBTQ+ community,
From various socioeconomic backgrounds,
Living with disabilities,
Living with HIV.
We believe that experiences in all the above stated areas can be showcased in a multitude of ways – from personal experience as a young person growing up in environments similar to those the young girls in this program come from, grassroots work in your community, opportunities to work alongside marginalised communities during your education. Fundamentally, we are seeking Program Coordinators who will steer ATF to youth-centered work with fresh perspectives.
