The Program

TrueChild imagines a world where boys and girls are free from stereotypes so they can learn, grow, and reach their full potential.

Children are exposed to thousands of messages telling them what they can and can't be as a boy or a girl, limiting the exploration of their true interests and talents.

Researchers have crystallized links between early exposure to stereotypes and later problems among tweens and teens like early sexual activity, bullying, eating disorders, and academic under-achievement.

TrueChild focuses where the problem begins, ages 0–12. We are a powerful community of parents, experts and educators—finally and for the first time—giving voice to people who want to change the course of children's culture.

Opportunities for interns

Intern positions are available in the following departments: Administration, News/Media, Communications, Development and Research. Each position is designed to inform the intern about raising awareness, empowering parents and educators, and shaping the media and marketplace to promote children's healthy development and to sharpen professional and organizational skills.
