Working at The Lighthouse | Black Girl Projects

 Learn more about our culture, core values, and benefits below, and view our current opportunities and openings here.

Culture Statement

What we see happening to the collective Black and brown body, mind and spirit must be named as a reminder for us, for girls, and for those who’ve gone before us. “I see you … fighting for you is a fight for myself, … You deserve leisure, time to dream, rest.” 


We take a holistic approach to leadership development of Black girls and women through a consortium of projects. These projects are avenues by which Black girls in the southeastern United States may be centered, from our research, advocacy and organizing, communications, grantmaking and technical assistance, and education and  programs. 


We create safe spaces for these girls, with the ultimate goal of making their homes and communities places where their safety and freedom are welcomed. An organization working toward this approach would lack integrity if it didn’t, likewise, take a holistic approach to leadership development with its staff.

Current Opportunities

We are reopening applications to the Reese|Brooks|Gilbert Collegiate Leadership Initiative this Spring. With a new focus on STEM, young people in the program will have an opportunity to participate in experiential and enhance learning opportunities, develop relationships with program-assigned advisors, and build a network of peers to support their long-term personal and professional growth.

With relationships with more than 20 colleges and universities and an alumna network of nearly 100, RBG is a two-year fellowship program focusing on honing and sharpening leadership skills.

Historically an all-woman program, this spring we will welcome our first cohort of women and men who are exclusively STEM majors. Applications will open on February 2 1, 2024.
