Center Works: GET IT Fellowship
The Center’s GET IT fellowship (Getting Employed Through Industry Training) is a unique training program, offered by Center Works, that connects our community members to meaningful long-term employment opportunities through career training and internships.
The fellowship provides direct, onsite work experience at a safe and inclusive host company, in a field related to Fellows’ chosen career path. Upon completion, Fellows will have acquired skills necessary to be considered for employment in an entry-level position within that industry, and will have built a professional network. Each fellowship includes a capstone project that is meaningful to the individual and their host company, helping to build and/or augment Fellows’ resumés.
Throughout the GET IT fellowship, Fellows will meet with their assigned Center Works career counselor every two weeks for support as it relates to their fellowship and larger career goals post-fellowship. These meetings will be required for the first half of the fellowship, and on an as-needed basis for the second half.
In its first year, the GET IT fellowship will place two Fellows at Milk Makeup and two Fellows at JPMorgan Chase.
The GET IT fellowship is designed for unemployed or underemployed LGBTQ+ community members, who are:
- 18-30 years old
- Able to work in the U.S.
- LGBTQ+ identifying
- Able to work onsite
- Fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (vaccine and booster)
Applications are due August 12, 2022.
Fellows will be compensated at $15 per hour, equitable to The Center’s equivalent internship opportunities. For this 36-week program (from September-June), each Fellow will have the opportunity to earn up to $8,100.
