If you’re looking for a flexible volunteer position to accommodate your busy schedule, then our Residential Volunteer opportunity is for you! Residential Volunteers assist our Residential Counselors with administrative tasks while coordinating activities for our busy households. Working directly with both our counselors and our bright, young scholars, our residential volunteers play an important role in making our houses homes.
Residential Volunteer applicants must be at least 21 years of age. Additionally, these volunteers may be involved with transporting our scholars and, therefore, requires a valid drivers’ license, proof of auto insurance, and a three-year driver history report.
What better way is there to join the Girls Hope family than to sit down with us for dinner? Our Dinner Helpers either bring a premade or purchased meal and join our scholars and Residential Counselors for a family-style meal, or arrive early to engage with our girls in helping to prepare a meal (and stay to enjoy it, too! ). If your schedule is busy, don’t worry – you can still help our scholars enjoy a delicious and nutritious meal by dropping of a pre-prepared meal at one of our homes.
From basketball practice to forensic competitions to play practice, our scholars are always on the go! Transportation Volunteers help our scholars build a sturdy foundation for success by safely transporting them to interactive workshops, enrichment opportunities, and extracurricular activities that will help them reach their full potential.
Tutors and Talent Sharing
From subject-specific tutoring to piano lessons to fitness gurus, Girls Hope is always looking for gifted individuals to share their special talent with our scholars. Whether they are overseeing a daily study session or expanding our scholar’s skill set by teaching them a new talent, our Tutors and Talent Sharing Volunteers provide meaningful enrichment experiences that help our scholars thrive.
Girls Hope offers internships for senior-level college students and graduate students advancing in youth-related services, as well as opportunities to earn service learning hours through data-entry and semester-long tutoring.
