We are now accepting applications for Spring 2017 Volunteers! Our next required training day is Saturday, January 21, 2017. Please complete a volunteer application and we will reply with more details on how to complete the process to start.

What do volunteers do? Volunteers assist instructors who deliver Girls Inc. curriculum to girls in grades 1-9.

What is the weekly time commitment? Spring Programs start Monday, January 9, 2017 and end Thursday, April 27, 2017.

School Year Commitment: must be able to commit to ONE or TWO 3.5-hour shifts a week – always the same day and time – for the entire fall and/or spring semesters. Shifts are from 3:00-6:30pm.

Summer 2017 Programs start Monday, June 5, 2017 and end Thursday, August 3, 2017.

What is daily schedule for girls: School Year Schedule: girls participate in our after-school program on weekdays from 3-6:30pm. Girls are dropped off between 3-3:30pm, they eat supper from 3:30-4:30pm and then participate in Girls Inc. programs from 4:30-6pm. Pick-up time is between 6-6:30pm. On Mondays and Wednesdays we deliver Girls Inc. curriculum; on Tuesdays and Thursdays we offer homework help for girls through tutoring. Elementary School Programs girls have ‘Fresh Fridays’ each week; there are no programs on the last Friday of each session. Middle School Programs are Monday-Thursday only with 2 STEM Saturdays per month.

Summer Schedule: programs are all day from 8am-5:30pm Monday-Thursday. Girls are dropped off between 8-8:45am; they eat a morning snack and we have announcements at 9am. The first class lasts from 9am-12pm; lunch is 12-1:30pm, and our second class is from 1:30-4:30pm, followed by pick up time from 4:30-5:30pm. Classes range in topic, from life skills to science/technology to health and nutrition. All classes are age-appropriate for girls, informal and fun!

What are the training requirements? All new volunteers are required to attend New Volunteer Orientation and Training + ‘Embracing Inclusiveness at Girls Inc. and Beyond’ Workshop. At our training you will meet other volunteers, understand Girls Inc. as an organization and learn how to work with girls to meet them where they are. Thank you for understanding that we do not make exceptions for this being a required training. Training is by invite only and is offered only three times a year (typically January, June and August), so be sure not to miss it! Volunteers must submit an application, have an interview and conduct a background check prior to being invited. A light breakfast and full lunch is provided.

One day of training is required:

For SPRING 2017: Saturday, January 21, 2017 from 8:45am-5:00pm. Training is by invite only. New volunteers will start Monday, January 23, 2017.

For SUMMER 2017: Saturday, June 3, 2017 from 8:45am-5:00pm. Training is by invite only.

Sounds great! How do I start? The first step to becoming a volunteer is to complete our online Volunteer Application. From there you’ll be invited for an interview and given instructions on how to complete our background check.
