Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
OUR STRATEGY is to:
Educate girls and women about the importance of participation in sports and fitness by increasing outreach efforts to speak about the benefits of girls and women participating in sports and fitness to validate the importance of girls' and women's participation in sports and fitness.
Partner with other existing organizations to provide opportunities for girls and women to find the right activity for themselves and promote existing programs offered by other women-serving organizations; work with those organizations to develop sustainable programs for girls and women.
Champion efforts to engage underserved communities in sports and fitness by connecting them to existing resources for sports and fitness, and providing economic support to ensure economics is not a barrier to participation
Recognize the outstanding accomplishments of Arizona's female athletes and their supporters, to inspire others to action; and showcase the important work of PWSA and its impact on the future of girls and women.
Each year, PWSApartners with women collegiate and professional basketball players to provide a free basketball clinic in celebration of National Girls and Women in Sports Day. Working with collegiate and professional athletes gives the 125 nine- to 14-year-old girls who attend the event the opportunity to witness first-hand the benefits of participation, discipline, consistency and dedication. This annual event is so successful that PWSA is, unfortunately, forced to turn girls away. PWSA hopes to someday be able to hold this event more frequently in order to accommodate as many eager young female athletes as possible.With the help of its sponsor, Arizona Public Services (APS), PWSA supports the Phoenix Mercury and ASU Women's Basketball programs by purchasing tickets for community-based organizations (such as the City of Phoenix Department of Parks and Recreation, and the Boys & Girls Club) that provide services to lower income, at-risk neighborhoods. PWSA's goal is to raise awareness of the collegiate and professional opportunities that exist for girls and women - for our daughters, granddaughters, nieces, sisters, aunts, mothers, and grandmothers - through sports.
PWSA believes that every girl should be able to pursue her athletic dreams, and that economics should not be an obstacle to participation. Through its continuing fundraising efforts, PWSA hopes to implement ongoing grant and scholarship programs to help the girls and women of Arizona pursue their dreams.
