COMMUNITY SERVICE

We teach girls to build community and to give back. We build community service into our program to develop strong, compassionate female leaders. We strive to build healthy environments for all people and give everyone equal opportunity.

 

Why is Community Service important?

“I am more aware of how fortunate I am and the amazing opportunities I get that many others don’t have. I also know I still have so much to learn about the world and the people living in it.” - 7th grade volunteer post community service trip to Nicaragua summer 2016

Youth who volunteer are more likely to do well in school, graduate and vote. Young volunteers expand their social circle and enhance their social awareness and feel like a valued contributor of society. (UNCE)

Our girls have the opportunity to run soccer and leadership camps for other girls, to travel to other countries and help with the environment, to conduct used clothing and equipment drives at their schools, to host tournaments, to speak at events, and more.

How to get involved: 

  1. Clothing and equipment drives for girls in Nicaragua and the Tenderloin
  2. International Travel to less served countries
  3. Volunteer as Junior coaches at our free after school sites

Your support helps to grow tomorrow's leaders today!
