Community is a key component of our program’s mission and we foster this community through our events. Events are hosted approximately every two months and can range from strictly fun to educational but are usually both! Having a reliable and engaged Event Staff to support the event and our Program Coordinator during the event is extremely important to our mission at Girls Rising.
- Contact our Program Manager to schedule a 15 minute introductory phone call or meeting
- Provide one letter of reference
- Attend one event as an observer to see what we are all about!
After becoming a member of our Event Staff Team and attending two events as Event Staff, we will ask that you provide a current driving record and have a background check performed in order to assist in providing rides for the Little Sisters*. These additional checks are required for our program insurance and to ensure the safety of our Little Sisters. This role is crucial because our Big Sisters are not always able to attend and we want all the Little Sisters to have the opportunity to attend every event.
- Help to procure needed supplies or food for the event (will be reimbursed)
- Provide rides for Little Sisters whose Big Sisters are unable to attend*
- Arrive 30 minutes prior to the event when needed to assist in any set-up
- Be a resource for the Big and Little Sisters during the event
- Assist the Program Coordinator during the event
- Remain after the event to assist in any clean-up
- Have fun and get to know the Big and Little Sisters!
How to become a “Big Sister for the Day”:
For women interested in the Big Sister experience but who are unavailable for the one year Big Sister commitment this is a great way to get involved! Volunteers will be able to choose the events they would like to attend and the Little Sister they would like to be matched with for the event. To get started with this volunteer opportunity you will need to:
- Contact our Program Manager to schedule a 15 minute introductory phone call or meeting.
- Provide one letter of reference from a professional contact
- Complete a LiveScan background check
- Provide your driving record
- Provide proof of current auto insurance
