The Women’s Resource of Greater Houston is dedicated to helping women and girls make choices towards becoming independent, productive, and financially stable. We provide YourLife Finance Classes that offer the basics of personal finance, YourLife Possibility Groups that guide and support clients and RISE!, a program for at-risk high school girls to achieve their potential for personal and professional success.
Our administrative volunteers support our YourLife volunteer instructors and RISE! Guest Speakers by preparing materials and entering the evaluation data that make our programs successful.
Administrative volunteering is a long term volunteer commitment. We ask that volunteers devote 4 hours per week to their volunteer tasks over the course of at least 3 months.
- Detail oriented
- Seeks opportunities for improvement
We have a number of opportunities for our administrative volunteers. We ask that volunteers select at least two opportunities to assist with each month.
Data Management: We collect evaluation data on clients in each of our three programs. Data Management involves entering collected data into our online database. Data entry must be performed at our office. This task is ongoing throughout the year. Volunteers can sign up for shifts weekdays between 10AM and 4PM. Volunteers are encouraged to work 3-6 hours at a time, depending on their availability.
YourLife Finance Class Packet Making: Each client in our YourLife Finance Classes receives a participant guide and class flyers. Packet making involves assembling a packet of materials for each of our YourLife Finance Classes taking place the following month. We prepare 45 to 80 class packets each month. This task may take 6 or more hours to complete and re-occurs monthly on weekdays between the hours of 10 AM and 4PM.
YourLife Finance Class Packet Preparation: In an effort to streamline our packet making process, we ask volunteers to pre-count and stack flyers included in class packets by groups of 10. This task lasts about one hour and re-occurs monthly on weekdays between 10AM and 2PM.
Volunteer Orientation Folder Preparation: The Women’s Resource orients new YourLife volunteer instructors each month. Orientation folders are prepared monthly for an audience of 5-10 volunteers. This task requires use of a copier and printer and takes 2 or more hours to complete. This task re-occurs monthly between the hours of 10AM and 2PM.
RISE! Collage Cutting: Each RISE! participant creates a values collage to imagine the possibilities she would like to explore after high school. We provide a number of pre-selected pictures to each RISE! class for the participants to choose from. Administrative volunteers cut out the pre-selected pictures and count the number of pictures per class envelope. This task may take 4 hours to complete if done alone and re-occurs twice annually in January and August between the hours of 10 AM and 4PM.
RISE! Facilitator Bag and Book Preparation: Each semester RISE! facilitators receive a bag with the materials and books they need for each lesson in the RISE! curriculum. Facilitator bag and book preparation involves sorting and pre-counting more than 15 different supplies for 10 or more RISE! classes. This task may take 3 hours to complete if done alone and re-occurs twice annually in January and August between the hours of 10 AM and 4PM.
