GIRL CONNECT WEEKLY VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY HOUSTON FALL 2022
Please visit the new page to apply.
Recruiting Organization: Girls Empowerment Network
Girl Connect is Girls Empowerment Network’s weekly recurring school-based program. Each semester, Girls Empowerment Network staff, interns, and volunteers work with girls to increase their self-efficacy, resiliency, and positive connection to peers and role models. With support from the Girls Empowerment Network program staff, interns, volunteers, and peers in Houston, Central Texas, Dallas, and San Antonio, Girl Connect equips girls in grades 3-12 with the skills they need to navigate girlhood.
As a Girl Connect volunteer, you will attend weekly sessions at a local school and act as a co-facilitator alongside the Girls Empowerment Network program lead, all while forming encouraging and caring relationships with the girls in the program. Volunteers lead ice breakers, activities, facilitate discussions, and provide assistance to the Girls Empowerment Network program lead on-site.
As a direct service volunteer, you can choose to volunteer with Girl Connect in either of the following ways:
• Co-facilitate a weekly school group that takes place during the school day between 8AM-3PM and lasts for 1½ hours.
• Co-facilitate a weekly afterschool group that takes place between the hours of 3PM-5:45PM and lasts for 2 hours.
Important notes about this volunteer opportunity:
• this volunteer opportunity is only available to individuals who have been fully vaccinated.
• Girl Connect volunteers are required to attend a virtual Direct Service Volunteer Training (trainings for the 2022-23 school year are available in July, August, and September).
• volunteers are assigned to a specific school in Houston and will be required to commit to the same time and day every week for the entirety of the semester.
• Girls Empowerment Network prefers that volunteers make a two-semester minimum commitment. Consistency is key for the girls we serve and we want to ensure that volunteers are able to commit to our programs and the girls they work with.
• we anticipate that Fall 2022 semester programming will begin in late August/early-mid September.
If you are interested/available to volunteer in-person each week with our Girl Connect program, please fill out this form!
