About

Are you excited about supporting young women? Join us as a Girls Inc. Mentor for elementary school girls!

The Girls Inc. mission is to "inspire girls to be strong, smart, and bold" through research-based informal education programs that encourage girls to take risks and master physical, intellectual and emotional challenges. Through a variety of activities and experiences, Girls Inc. equips girls to navigate gender, economic and social barriers and grow into healthy, educated, and independent adults.

Girls Inc. Elementary School Mentors will assist with a range of activities that allow girls to explore new options and push themselves into healthy spaces outside of their comfort zone. In addition to assisting with these activities, volunteers will help set up and clean up snack, guide girls through transitions between activities and assist with tutoring.

We are looking for volunteers at two locations: Lowell Elementary and Emerson Elementary.

Lowell Elementary:
Mondays 1:10-4pm mentors will be assisting with study hall and academic enrichment with STEM fun & health and wellness activities.
