Girls Inc. of Carpinteria is proud to have more than 100 dedicated volunteers each year. We seek people for on-going commitments, short-term projects and internships. Get involved by joining the Girls Inc. team and help us change the world: one girl, one family, one community at a time. The following are just some of the volunteer opportunities available at Girls Inc. this year:
Lend a hand with interactive and educational programs throughout the year, such as serving as a reading buddy as part of our Literacy Program.
Make an impact by becoming a mentor in the Bold Futures Mentoring Program. Bold Futures serves 5th-8th grade girls and volunteer mentors meet with their small group of girls once per week to develop supportive relationships.
The perfect opportunity for businesses and their employees to run workshops at our center on topics like entrepreneurship, photography, sports and fitness, economic literacy, communication skills and more.
Host a Field Trip at YOUR Workplace
This is one of the most popular ways local women inspire girls to pursue careers in technology, graphic design, city planning, politics, and engineering. A typical field trip consists of hosting a healthy lunch or snack, touring the office, a demonstration of your work with a hands-on component and a Mentoring Panel. Our staff will partner with you on the planning and preparation while the girls start researching your company and field of expertise. You will have an enormous impact in just one afternoon!
One-Day Service Projects
Coordinate activities that engage girls and adults with hands-on service projects.
Eureka! Externships Hosts
We’re always seeking business professionals to partner with as part of our Eureka! college-bound program, who are interested in sponsoring an extern to support, mentor, and encourage as she navigates the work world for the first time. Learn more about Eureka! here.
There are many opportunities for engagement throughout the year from intimate community gatherings to our annual fundraising events. Bring your event planning and social networking skills to an event that shows your commitment to the mission of Girls Inc.!
