Girl Power! Wo-mentor Application 2018-2019
The YWCA's Girl Power! is a free after-school and day-time enrichment program located out of six schools and several drop-in sites in the Duluth area. Each site has a group consisting of 10-20 students in 3rd-5th or 6th-8th grade. Our activities work to carry out the YWCA's mission of empowering women and girls, eliminating racism. Programming consists of Girls Inc. leadership development curriculum, STEM (science technology engineering math) experiments, self esteem building, academic support, social justice, community engagement, field trips and much more. YWCA Girl Power! staff work hard to get to know all of our kids in the program and develop meaningful and healthy relationships, but with an average ratio of 1:10, we could use your help!

We are looking for volunteers like you to join us once a week (or more!) for at least one school semester to serve as an additional positive role models ("Wo-mentor"). All our volunteer opportunities provide you with the chance to get to know some awesome girl power! participants in our community and support their growth into strong, smart, and bold leaders of our community!
