Project Overview

FBIIB Inc. is in need of a GRANT WRITER to identify and apply for foundation grants, primarily online. This post would require 2 to 4 hours a week reviewing our resource list, scheduling grant applications and RFPs, completing applications, and making occasional phone calls and email inquiries.
Founded in 2105, ​FBIIB Inc. is a unique Reentry & Media startup that spotlights the talent of young people who, despite a criminal justice past, are transcending expectations to create more productive futures.

In partnership with Transcendence Media, FBIIB will be launching a youth production workshop at our LIC/NY production studio, a space we are calling The New-Gen Production House.

This program will be a 12-Session workshop to train at-risk-youth (16 to 24) to envision, organize, film, edit, and publish compelling media content through HD video. Students will work in 3 teams of four, each team ultimately producing a 2-minute video that features a post-incarceration success story.

One thing that excites us about this program is filming some behind-the-scenes footage of our students learning, engaging, filming their subjects, and talking about this experience. This footage along with their 2-minute films, will form each episode of our Docu-Series, From Bars II Beyond.

The program aims to inspire young minds in at least 2 ways:
1) By sharing ​the ingredients of how formerly incarcerated leaders overcame ​their​ challenges to transformation, and
2) Showing these at-risk students using what they learned to shape, not only their video stories, but their own paths toward a better future.

To help develop and implement our programs, we are in need of a volunteer to help us raise funding from state grants and private foundations.

Volunteer will be provided all necessary copy and organizational info for the applications, including budget/finance and programming plans, grant source listings, media, and supporting references.

In addition, a Thank-You Award will be presented to volunteer that works with us for three months as an appreciation for their commendable work

Nonprofit Overview

Founded in 2015, ​FBIIB Inc. is a unique Reentry & Media startup that spotlights the talent of young people who, despite a criminal justice past, are transcending expectations to create more productive futures.

While we have filmed a number of interviews with some amazing leaders post-incarceration, we are preparing to debut FBIIB's first program to bring at-risk-youth into our filming process.

In partnership with Transcendence Media, FBIIB will launch a youth production workshop at our LIC/NY production studio, a space we are calling The New-Gen Production House.
