We cannot express enough how valuable our volunteers are to us, to our mission, and to our girls. Volunteers make the most impact when they facilitate Girls Inc. programs to the girls. They are there to teach girls how to think, not what to think; our volunteers give girls the tools to be strong, smart, and bold.

In addition, our volunteers are also our greatest advocates. As volunteers lead a program, they see first-hand how we are meeting our mission. Word-of-mouth is our number one way to recruit volunteers and we can’t recruit new volunteers without the help of our current volunteers. Current volunteers, we need your help!

Last October, we ran Girlfriends for Girls Inc., a volunteer recruitment campaign. This campaign was so successful, we had to bring it back. This year, we will be running the campaign again in October, just in time for our Annual Meeting. Save the date; the annual meeting will be held October 20 at WFYI. More information to come soon!
