So excited to announce the opening of our Chicago-based Project Assistant Internship position! Want to be working on a political fashion blog, producing an ethical clothing line, working to organize a Chicago-based sewing co-operative of refugee women, spending time with someone who is perpetually craving ice cream (that's me), AND making money? Read on.

This internship requires a minimum 20 hours per week for 6 months and is paid a stipend. As the Project Assistant will be working directly with the refugee sewing co-operative, all applicants must be located in Chicago for the duration of this internship -- absolutely no exceptions!

The JooJoo Azad internship is designed to support AMEMSA (African/Middle Eastern/Muslim/South Asian) women/femmes who are building their empires -- in entrepreneurship, journalism, media, and personal creative projects--and work with them in developing and furthering their networks, connections, portfolio, writing, community organizing, and leadership. We cannot rely on our oppressors to tell our stories. We must document our own narratives. 

Creative, activist-minded AMEMSA women/femmes who are ready to take sh*t down--online and offline--are encouraged to apply! 

Note that you do not have to be a USA citizen to apply!

Application deadline is July 9, 2018 and interviews will take place the following week. The position will begin July 2018 2018 and interns are expected to work a minimum of 20 hours a week for 6 months, and will be paid with a stipend. Complete application details and instructions can be found via the link below


Happy applying, and can't wait to read your apps!
