With the assistance of the Iowa Women’s Foundation grant, Love Girls Magazine will host a leadership development and media and marketing internship program for adolescent girls ages 13 to 19 years old. The magazine will recruit local middle and high school students in Scott County. Girls will be required to complete an application and 25 girls will be accepted into training and internship program. In the training program, each girl will complete a photography, writing, and marketing project. Upon completion of the program, they will intern with Love Girls Magazine, where they will work with adult mentors to publish and market this self-esteem magazine. Each girl will receive a stipend for completed projects and a commission for ad sales.
