Volunteers

The empowHER Leadership Retreat couldn’t be successful without dedicated and passionate volunteers. From passing out registration information and swag to setting out food, guiding participants and assisting with general problem solving, this group is paramount to creating a great experience for everyone.

Mentors

Mentoring a group of empowHER girls is an opportunity to play an important role in the growth and development of young women. Each girl comes to us with a different story and set of challenges in her life. We will ask you to use your own experiences to create a nurturing, inclusive and supportive team for their two days with us.

 

 

Pairs of mentors will lead a group of 10-12 girls to each of their sessions, debrief with them after the sessions and lead various team-building activities. Mentors will serve as role models to the participants and teach them to listen and be supportive of one another. 

 

To be a mentor, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Be available to attend the entire two days of the event

  • Attend the training session

  • Be a young woman between the ages of 18-24

  • Genuinely and enthusiastically embrace the opportunity to work with this group of girls

  • Overview of additional available resources at the event
