Session Assistant

With girls at partner schools, Session Assistants support program facilitators by helping with check-in, participating in discussions, distributing snacks, etc. This opportunity requires a regular, biweekly commitment for a year with most programs generally scheduled school day mornings and afternoons. An additional background screening is completed for the safety of our girl and community.

Special Event Volunteer

LEAD Girls hosts three major events throughout the year: Anniversary Soiree in March, LEAD A Thon in the summer months, and Girls Rising Expo in the Fall normally in October. Special Event volunteers help make these events possible by assisting with everything from event logistics to day of event support.

Presenter/ Guest Speaker

Are you an enthusiastic, driven, LEADer with gifts, knowledge, wisdom, and/or experience to share? Then you may make an excellent presenter or guest speaker at one of our programs. Please email us at info@leadgirls.org to inquire about opportunities that can utilize your expertise.

Office Elves

Do you enjoy organizing and preparing? Then volunteering as an Office Elf may be the perfect opportunity for you! Several times throughout the year, LEAD provides 200+ girls with LEADer bags. During business hours, Office Elves help make this magic happen by preparing session handouts, packing LEADer bags, and performing other vital office tasks.

Drive Support

Want a creative way to support our girls? Host a drive! Whether you are part of a team or working individually, hosting a drive is a great way to support LEAD Girls. Our drive schedule outlines the items we collect each quarter to ensure what we’re collecting aligns with our girls’ needs.
