Join Our Team

Together, we create more welcoming communities
Our team is dedicated to welcoming New Americans, specifically refugee women and girls new to Grand Rapids. We are a tight-knit team that is just as concerned with the 'how' as the 'what' of our mission.

As a young organization, we have the ability to adapt to needs as they change and grow based on lessons learned. Every day is an adventure and we're always on the lookout for people who are passionate about the work, willing to take risks, adaptable to any situation, and happy to pitch in on the big projects and small daily needs (like restocking the coffee & tea that keeps us fueled).

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


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.
