Volunteer With Girl Power!
Being a “Woman of the Week” is a one-time opportunity to share your career, leadership skills, passion etc with our girls. Women of the Week join us and lead an interactive activity and/or discussion during our programming times.
“Wo-mentors” join us on a weekly basis and serve as additional positive role models for the girls, helping with homework, activities, and more. Wo-mentors get the chance to develop relationships and share experiences with girls.
If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering as a Woman of the Week, please call (218)722-7425 x116 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
