Get Involved

Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta is looking for volunteers to help us deliver programs throughout the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo.

Volunteer & Mentor

Girls Inc of Northern Alberta is involved in the community in many ways. The assistance of volunteers aids us in successfully reaching our goals of inspiring all girls to be Strong, Smart and Bold. Volunteers have the power to have an enormous impact on the girls in our community and within our programs.

The many ways that volunteers can become involved with our organization are by participating in Teaching Programs, Promotional Events or being a part of our Board of Directors.

Below we have outlined several ways that volunteers can become involved:

 

Teaching Programs:

Our key programs Media Smarts℠ and Friendly PEERsuasion® are taught within local schools throughout the RMWB.  Having guest speakers visit and discuss their real life experience with program content helps the girls to connect deeper with the concepts of Media Literacy, substance abuse awareness, and it allows them to see local role models.

Program volunteers will always work directly with a Girls Inc. staff person and use their own skills to enhance girls’ learning. Programs are offered in-school during regular school hours, evenings, and weekends and on school holidays.

We would love to bring you on as a volunteer programmer for Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta. We ask that volunteers submit a Event Volunteer Registration Form, by doing so we will understand what skills you have and what vision you would like your volunteer experience be like.  For more information, please contact us at 780 790 9236 or programs_girlsinc@telus.net.

 

Promotional Events:

Do you enjoy being involved in the community… and have a few hours to spare at key Girls Inc. events?  Perhaps you would like to get involved in the planning or day of operation of one of our annual events. Some of our annual events include: Women of Inspiration Celebration (June), Golf Tournament (July). and our Zombie Run (September or October).

 

Board of Directors:

Perhaps you are interested in becoming involved in the overall management of the organization. We are looking for committed men and women with a variety of expertise.

 

Becoming a Girls Inc. Volunteer/Mentor:

We ask that those interested in being a mentor or volunteer submit either a Mentor Registration Form or an Event Volunteer Registration Form, by doing so we will understand what skills you have and what vision you would like your volunteer experience to be like.

Volunteers and Mentors are:

  • Have one or two hours a week to spare
  • Are 18+ years old (Mentors)
