Would you recommend Girls Quest?

Growing up in a low-income family, I understand how tough it is to get ahead. I was lucky to have a mother who was very involved in my studies, whereabouts, etc. Kids that grow up with out everyday interaction with an "authority" figure lose sight of their worth and potential. As a latina and member of my community, it is necessary to help where possible. These children will one day run this world. It is essential they have the necessary tools to make a good start.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
