Volunteers

Girls Inc. volunteers are passionate about encouraging and supporting girls as they navigate the complexities of their young lives. Many of our programs - like Eureka! and the Teen Leadership Academy – would not exist without the generosity and expertise of volunteers.

Our volunteers do more than give their energy and effort. They help us shape our programs, and they often get as much from their experience as the girls they support. 

  • Long-Term Volunteers and Interns work with us for 3 months or longer, donating a minimum of two hours per week. Long-term volunteers are trained and report to a staff supervisor about specific goals and objectives.
  • Short-Term Volunteers connect with Girls Inc. for one-time projects, workshops or event support. They receive orientation and appropriate training from staff, but their commitment is typically project-based.
  • Partners and Stakeholders. Partners - including businesses and other organizations who support our work - volunteer their time and resources through professional services, mentorship, and other forms of support. Contact us today to ally your community-minded business with Girls Inc.'s mission!

Volunteers interested in connecting directly with programs should expect to have availability that falls between 3:00PM and 6:00PM Mondays-Fridays during the academic year, with more full day flexibility during the summer program season. Please call (413) 532-6247 for more information. 

Our mission is to inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold by providing them the opportunity to develop and achieve their full potential.
