Thank you for your interest in learning more about volunteering with You Grow Girl!
Listed below are our current opportunities.
High School Program
It is our goal to provide high school students the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience, mentoring and career exploration opportunities within a non-profit setting, while giving back to others. Students in grades 9-12 (and recent graduates!) can invest their time and skills in a number of ways:
- Engage with participants (grades 4-6) in creative, recreational and educational day camp activities during spring and summer break
- Work with other high school students in our youth-led Girl Up Advisory Board to plan, promote and host community advocacy events
- Build your resume and mentoring skills by becoming a peer mentor to participants (grades 6-9)
By participating in this volunteer program, teens gain community service credit needed for graduation, professional experience in a non-profit setting, exposure to expressive arts interventions tools, and girl-empowering events as well as a chance to collaborate with peers from all over King County.
Board of Directors
The Board provides governance to the organization, represents the organization in the community, and accepts fiscal responsibility for the effective use of the resources of the organization to fulfill the mission of You Grow Girl! The Board of Directors is responsible for defining the organization’s mission, setting policy and developing the strategic direction for the organization.
We are looking for individuals, 21 and older, to join the Board whose areas of strength include: fundraising, public relations, marketing, education, behavioral health, social justice, youth development, financial management, non-profit, and law.
We’re committed to assembling a diverse board to represent our youth and families. Men, people of color, former participants/family members, and community members are strongly encouraged to apply.
Applications are accepted year-round with interviews in May/June and appointment in August/September.
Resource Development Committee
The Committee oversees all fundraising activities and events on behalf of the participants of You Grow Girl!. Activities include organizing online campaigns and hosting annual events. If you live to plan events, meet new people and have some fun while creating opportunities for our sisters to thrive. We want you!
Meetings are held once a month on Wednesdays from 6:00-7:30pm at our Lake City office. Applications are accepted year-round.
Questions: contact Tami Shearer, Ambassador at (206) 227-2579 or email.
If you got the time we have the opportunities. From mentoring our youth to helping us with our annual fundraising events, we are always in need of awesome volunteers.
