Lead A Program

Volunteers engage girls at partner locations throughout greater Indianapolis using our fun, hands-on, and highly-researched curriculum. We equip volunteer teams with easy-to-use lesson plans and program supplies, and we provide comprehensive training and ongoing support during their service.

Volunteering for Girls Inc. is a convenient yet meaningful way to impact greater Indianapolis girls. Our volunteers select their program (date, time, and location) based on their schedules, making their volunteer experience uniquely suited for them. No two volunteers are the same, so neither are their experiences at Girls Inc. Volunteers must be 18 years or older.

Time Commitment

Our volunteer-led programs are delivered in one-hour sessions at outreach locations throughout greater Indianapolis. Each program runs for six consecutive weeks. Our programs take place Monday-Friday, with the first program starting at 9:00 a.m. and the last program at 4:30 p.m.

Volunteer-Led Programs

Volunteers can select which Girls Inc. program they’d like to lead and the age group they’d like to work with. All of our programs are customized for three different age groups: 6-8, 9-11, and 12-14. For more information on the program’s content, click the program name below.
