This is an opportunity for motivated queer-identified and young minority community organizers to have a hand at growing and developing a start-up non-profit.
About Us and Our Mission:
Rebel Cause Inc. aka Rebel Kids is a not for profit organization founded in 2016 by a group of young adults dedicated to developing equitable and sustainable communities in Boston and around the world. Our mission is to encourage the development of sustainable communities by presenting opportunities for social and economic development to disenfranchised individuals, families and communities throughout the US and around the world.
The purposes for which the Corporation is organized are to perform any and all lawful charitable act or activities within the meaning specified in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, as amended from time to time. These activities include but are not limited to the below mentioned:
1. bring about and facilitate the collaboration of groups of minority young adults seeking to improve the quality of life in their communities that fall beneath the poverty level through the implementation and coordination of comprehensive social programs and community initiatives.
2. promote within those communities the development of projects aimed towards circumventing the perpetuation of racial generational wealth inequality
3. create civic, educational and employment opportunities of advancement for minority youth residing in poverty
4. raise and allocate funds to support the initiating, operating, and coordinating the foregoing purposes of the Corporation.
We endeavor to provide a door, a spark, and the fruition of possibility to residents working for the betterment of their local community. We are offering a banner to organize for justice, equity, and a sustainable future for our communities by engaging a local-first support system.
What kind of change Rebel Cause Inc seeks to be in the world:
We endeavor to be the rock that organizers and social innovators can count on when getting into the messy and complex work of change.
When local community members take the initiative to bring about positive change to their community, we are here to help.
Through our unique incubation program, we hope to facilitate the coalition and integration of community service work and social service initiatives and programs founded and operated by young adults of color serving underserved communities. Under the umbrella of Rebel Cause Inc, these grassroots organizations work in partnership to improve the quality of life in their communities through the implementation and coordination of comprehensive micro-level social programs.
Who is a good fit for our culture:
Members of the Rebel Cause Team have an intimate experience with the problems plaguing these communities. This wisdom comes from lived-experience that we believe helps us to more effectively develop programs and initiatives that create tangible change in response to the plights of the disadvantaged communities in which we are residents. We are dedicated to our foundation as a grassroots organization formed and operated by minority inner-city young adults and thus prize our members who share lived- experiences and residential status with the affected communities we serve.
