Girls Council 2019-2020
On behalf of the Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest Staff, we would like to thank you for supporting your youth’s involvement in our organization. Your youth is a Girls Inc. girl—she is strong, smart, and bold, and willing to use her voice to stand up for herself and her peers. We hope you will encourage your youth to expand her role by becoming a member of the Girls Council.

Girls Council is an advisory group composed of girls who have participated or are interested in participating in our programs. Through participation in Girls Council, girls gain skills and experience in:

Leadership
Policy and Advocacy
Community involvement
Women in Politics

Members are expected to attend a monthly council meeting typically held on the second Thursday of the month and at least one additional commitment each month. This may include a media appearance, an interview, or Girls Inc. event. In January, February, and March members are expected to attend two meetings a month. The first meeting will tentatively be held the second week of October at the Girls Inc. office:

4800 SW Macadam Avenue Portland, OR 97239
Date and Time TBD

The first meeting is mandatory. If you cannot provide transportation for your youth, please let us know in advance and we will do our best to accommodate.

Council members will represent Girls Inc. at Power of the Purse, our organization’s largest fundraiser of the year. The event consists of a dinner and a live auction where girls will model purses designed by local celebrities and ask their community to invest in their futures. Power of the Purse will take place on Friday, April 10, 2020. We will hold dress rehearsals beginning in late February/early March that girls must attend to prepare for the event. The rehearsals time and dates will be announced soon.

Girls Inc. is an organization founded on the belief that girls can use their voices to empower themselves, their families, and their peers. Girls Council provides an opportunity for girls to use those voices—to become their own best advocates. Please contact me at (503)230-0054 x110 or at nicole.davison@girlsincpnw.org if you have further questions regarding this opportunity.

Applications are due by Wednesday, September 18. Candidates selected for a Girls Council interview will be notified by Monday, September 23th.

Best,

Nicole Davison
