Where to Apply

If you’re a facilitator* with multiple years of experience facilitating preteens and teens socialized as girls, and managing other facilitators, and you’re looking to join a brilliant team and put your skills to good use from home (or wherever you want in the world-ish), you might just be the right person they’re looking for. They’re an online education company that supports big-hearted preteens and teens socialized as girls to feel more confident being their real selves. They’ve got a beautifully expanding community this year… and they need the right heart and set of hands to join them!

*Our ideal candidate is able to connect easily with the preteen and teen experience, often through semi-recent personal experiences (as they’re a company founded in our intergenerational mentorship model). If your preteen or teen years feel far away, this is likely not the right role for you (please keep in mind that ‘feel’ is relative for biological age!).

A few questions:

Are you a social worker, counselor, educator, graduate student in similar field, skilled facilitator (or similarly applicable background) with experience working with preteens and teens socialized as girls, but you’re tired of running your own business, working at an exhausting job, or you’re seeking more variety in your work life? You want to be part of a sustainable and inspiring collective vision and team?

Do you believe deeply in the power of online community (having had your own life-changing experiences online) and you’re so lit up by the idea of supporting a community to step into its fullest potential?

Do you love the training you received in the past… but you’re craving something more real, more deep, more playful, more fun, and yes… more effective? Are you dreaming of joining a team that will give you the training, the tools, and the structured role to facilitate in this more soulful and real way?

Are you trauma-informed, liberation and social justice-minded, and a practiced expert at your own resourcing, integration and riding personal and collective waves of intensity?

Does facilitating sessions with preteens and teens (large group, small group, and 1:1 sessions) just light you up? Like you feel giddy, purposeful, and like in your bones you just know you’re doing what you’re ‘here to do’ in this life? Do you love facilitating conversations on body love, emotional intelligence, friendships, sex ed, and literally anything else that’s up for preteens or teens?

Does leading a team of facilitators and being part of the supervision team light you up? Are you experienced in holding that level of responsibility?

Does assessing high-risk situations as needed and facilitating referrals to outside support actually soothe your heart? Because you’re no stranger to triaging intensity with your strong, calm, trusting presence?

Are you an attachment science and relationship nerd? Like, you love getting your hands on a new book or podcast episode… every week? And you’re always talking about it with anyone who… shows any interest?

Does connecting with people, finding the attuned words, feeling for the right timing… light you up? Like, it’s one of your superpowers?

Are you a type A with a penchant for detail and organization who handles a complex schedule, detailed spreadsheets and hundreds of individual clients’ journeys with ease and attunement?

Does working with good people who are doing good things light you up?

Are you interested in the future potential of collaboratively creating a full time role for yourself at Badass Girls with benefits and profit sharing?

They may have something just for you!

About them:

Badass Girls is an online mentorship business for big-hearted preteens and teens socialized as girls (ages 10-17) who are tired of faking it. Founded by Eliza Reynolds, co-author of Mothering & Daughtering, our mission is to empower a new generation of preteens + teens with the inner tools and experiences to trust themselves. They do this by providing online mentorship programs on topics like body image, anxiety, stress, belonging, embodiment, sex ed, and periods. They also offer live and virtual events, a podcast, a newsletter, and an online community. Parents love our programs, and — more importantly — our participants genuinely do too (and return year after year).

Our Core Values:


They’re devoted to our mission (like, it’s a calling). They show up fully to make our projects happen. They’re intense, in the best way. They’re clear on our superpowers (AKA zones of badass genius) and our teamwork thrives off this.


They’re here for the daily belly-laughter. They know that feeling good is an essential nutrient for revolution. They’re researchers of how to lead every process, every meeting, and every project… with more joy. It’s non-negotiable. They know that it’s both revolutionary, and it fuels the revolution. If it feels good, They’re doing it more.


They do what they say they’re gonna do. They communicate clearly, early, and effectively. They get our tasks done early. They ask for clarification as needed, and then take care of our own project roadblocks. They manage our own time. They take responsibility for our feelings, assumptions and projections.


They care so damn much. Our hearts are kinda bigger than our bodies. They’re people-centered (they really care about our community, and they go above and beyond for them). They’re high touch and give very personal customer service. They’re relationally attuned, and they’re personally passionate about growing our own ability to serve, connect and communicate better and better (always). Because they’re so big hearted, they’ve got loving boundaries to match.


They’re devoted to liberation and equitable futures for all. There’s no liberation without the dismantling of inner and outer systems of oppression. They know that to trust ourselves, to be ourselves, and to come home to ourselves, they’ve gotta get free and young people are ready for these conversations. Our programs center the joy and urgency of liberation for preteens + teens.


When something doesn’t go the way they wanted: they don’t see failures, they have revelations. They’re positive AF (but don’t bypass the discomfort). They move towards the growth opportunity. They know vulnerability is a strength. They practice discernment rather than judgement.


They know they’re not just brains walking around. They take care of our bodies and nervous systems before they show up for work. They recognize and reject the dominant work culture of hustling, pushing through, and draining ourselves in order to ‘succeed’. They actively seek and support a culture where our bodies, feelings, and intuition matters. They nourish ourselves so they can offer nourishment in our work.

More about the position:

The Badass Girls Program Director is responsible for the participant experience in all paid programs here at Badass Girls. If they’re Hogwarts… the PD is part guidance counselor and part assistant headmistress. They make sure our program participants feel supported, clear on program delivery and how to get the most out of the program, and that our online community experience is nourishing, fun, brave, and inspires a deeper trusting relationship with self for each participant.

The Program Director lives and breathes care, facilitation and attuned support. They’re passionate about the dance of interdependence, boundaries, liberation, love, right relationship and what support at the aligned time in someone’s life can change for their inner and outer horizons. They’re passionate about healthy transference, withdrawing projections, and stepping outside their own inflation/deflation to being their whole, worthy, imperfect self to their communities as a facilitator, guide, leader and human. The Program Director, as the leader and coordinator of the BG Support Team, is someone who has met and healed their own relationship to the preteen and teen years so they are able to effectively support and facilitate others journeys through this developmental period. They give the ride, they don’t take the ride. They are committed to the positive potential of the preteen and teen years for all beings, and especially folks socialized as girls.
