Learn about grant submissions and the technique of grant writing by working with our Face Forward Operations Director. You will draft several grant proposals throughout the semester and leave this internship with increased knowledge about grant submissions, grant writing, both of which are valuable and rare skills to have to be able to submit your own in the future! Those interested in working with nonprofit organizations or agencies will especially benefit from this internship.

“I can’t sing. Nor can I dance, paint, write, or play an instrument. I can, however, inspire and be inspired; motivate and be motivated; influence and be influenced. And I can confess I have felt all of these through my work with Face Forward. I’ve had handfuls of great networking opportunities though this organization and I’ve especially enjoyed being a representative of Face Forward. I found that spontaneously giving out business cards to street artists or sending emails to potential clients have really helped build the Face Forward community… and I’m proud to say I have contributed.
