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! The Bold Futures Mentoring Program serves 5th – 8th grade girls. 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.
