Together, we create more welcoming communities
“Paragraph about our mission, our culture, the kind of people we love to be around, and the cultural competency it takes.”



Are you ready to apply your gifts and skills to a cause you care about? Consider applying for an internship with Treetops Collective.

We place high value on our interns and therefore take our time to find the candidates that best fit our mission and vision.

Our goal is not only to include interns in the important work of furthering our mission, but to invest in each one individually so they grow personally and professionally during their time with us.

Although our internships are set up on concrete benchmarks of what is expected, our secondary goal is that they will be passionate advocates for building a welcoming community by the time they leave us.

Internship Description


Treetops Collective is a non-profit dedicated to welcoming New Americans, specifically refugee women and girls new to Grand Rapids. We are one part community development and one part social enterprise. We connect refugee women and girls to people and opportunities so they can flourish here for generations to come.  We are a tight-knit family that is just as concerned with the 'how' as the 'what' of our mission. 

If you are committed to this work of welcoming newcomers and interested in a growing organization with an exciting mission, please read on.

If there isn't a position posted that you're interested in open, but you are interested in future positions, please send your resume to We always love to meet new people.

Every person needs a place to belong--and when you find your place, you discover community, identity and support. At Treetops, we focus specifically on three key areas of relationships: Between refugee women, Between refugee women and non-refugee women, and between refugee women and our city’s institutions and processes.
