PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT is growing fast. We are looking for game changers to join our #SweatSisterhood. There are five core values that set the tone for our company culture.
1. Be passionate about health, fitness, friendship and philanthropy.
From inception, PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT has had three simple equations:
Uniting + Empowering Girls Through Fitness = PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT
Fitness + Friendship = FUN
Get Fit + Give Back = SWEAT MAKES CENTS
It’s super important for girls at all fitness levels to make health a priority and support one another. Our mission is to unite women through a #SweatSisterhood, show the many faces of fitness, and change the ingrained, negative stereotypes that sweat holds.
2. Be innovative.
Our #SweatSquad must be creative, introduce new ideas, and be original.
3. Be humble.
No matter your economic background, title, age, education, or if your favorite team won a national championship last season there is no “I” in TEAM. We respect and value everyone’s opinions and work together to move beyond our previous successes.
4. Ability to inspire.
Through in person and virtual support, we find creative an innovative ways to motivate ourselves and encourage this community.
5. Get ish done!
We thrive in a fast paced, ever changing environment and it is not easy. After the hard work is done, it’s all worth it when thousands of girls are inspired (and you had fun doing it).

Former Pretty Girls Sweat interns say:
Being a Pretty Girls Sweat intern was well rounded. I was able to utilize and maximize all of my skills ranging from writing to graphic design to photography. Working with a growing and uplifting brand like PGS provided me a wide range of opportunity to learn the basis of branding and brand management. Even more, I expanded on my own knowledge and I was given the chance to bring personal ideas into fruition, which is crucial in an internship setting. I also gained a sense of community and sisterhood. You can't find that in many internship opportunities, but PGS provides just that. – Maricia Josephs, former Photography Intern
It's not quite common these days for one to be passionate about something. Through the mentorship of Aeshia DeVore Branch I'm proud to say that I was able to do just that, become passionate. This internship with Pretty Girls Sweat has allowed me to see just how important it is to help make a difference. I remembered when I attended the first Pretty Girls Sweat event in NYC at only 18 years old, and now at just 23 years young I have so much to be thankful for. The experience was something that I couldn't have gained elsewhere. I've learned to conduct myself in a professional way, to think "outside-of-the-box" and to simply live each day with a smile! Every girl should get a chance to experience this outstanding organization at least once in their lifetime. If there was one word to sum up my experience it would simply be "Unbelievable." - Ashley-Cree Maddix, Social Media/Marketing Intern
I'm grateful to have been a part of the Pretty Girls Sweat team. I was an intern for a little over two years and in those two years, I grew and became a better journalist thanks to the program. I was able to get experience that helped prepare me for my current career as a news reporter. I was even given the chance to interview celebrities and executives in the entertainment industry. Not only was it great at helping me with my career, but it introduced me to some of the most inspiring women I know. It's more than an internship. It’s a sisterhood of women helping you to grow and be the best version of yourself that you can possibly be. - Kendria Lafluer, Video Intern
Working as an intern for a brand that means so much to girls, teens and young women across the country has been remarkable. I appreciate how dedicated our team is! I've definitely grown both personally and professionally via my connections with the ambassadors and assignments. - Brianna Arps, former Pretty Girls Sweat Editorial Intern
Interning at Pretty Girls Sweat was a great learning experience. I was able to use my creative skills to encourage girls to live healthy lives as well as build my professional portfolio. The skills I learned as an intern will serve me well in the future. - Genesis Henriquez, former Graphic Design Intern
