You believe that girls are strong, smart and bold. Our Girls Guide volunteer opportunity is the essential way to be involved with girls and deliver our gender specific, research-based programs. Two adult Girls Guides are matched together to co-lead an after school Girls Inc. Girls Group.

THE GIRLS GUIDE ROLE

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?

  • Girls Inc. will provide you with training in group facilitation, age-appropriate and gender specific program delivery, and highly researched, ready-made curricula and activities for you to implement with our Girls Groups.
  • You’ll get to know the girls in your group better each week, and they will love meeting you!
  • As a Girls Guide volunteer, you’ll be paired with a volunteer or staff co-facilitator and lead games, hands-on activities, and discussions each week that inspire girls to be strong, smart, and bold
  • We give you supplies and curriculum - you bring your enthusiasm for empowering girls!

Our programs are typically delivered after-school, Monday - Friday and begin between the hours of 1PM-4PM. The majority of our groups meet at schools or community centers in Central and South Seattle, Burien, Highline, and White Center areas.

Held once per week for eight consecutive weeks in the fall, winter, and spring, our Girls Groups mimic school calendars and each Group usually lasts from 90-minutes to 120 minutes each.

We take special care to match you with a group that works for you; one that is conveniently located and during the hours that fit your schedule whenever possible.

Women of color are strongly encouraged to volunteer.

This is an exciting time for Girls Inc. of the PNW - Fall 2018 is the kickoff of our programming in Seattle! We have been serving thousands of girls in the Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA areas and we could not be more excited to bring our programming to the beautiful and bustling city of Seattle! So grab a girlfriend who, like you, is interested in inspiring young girls to be strong, smart, and bold, and come volunteer today!
