Community Outreach Lead Positions

The estimated time commitment for our Community Outreach Lead position is 2-4 hours per week for the five months leading up to the event, July – November. And then a 5-6 hour day at the event on Saturday, November 12th in Washington, DC.

Our Community Outreach Leads are responsible for bringing girls from underserved communities to our events by gathering dozens of volunteers to bring small groups of girls. We call these group leader volunteers “Ambassadors” (see diagram).

An Ambassador is a person who volunteers to bring a group of girls to the event with him or her. This can be a group of 3 girls or 100 (or more!) girls.

With the support of the Girls Can Do team, Community Outreach Leads organize groups of Ambassadors in one particular focus area, such as the following and help them with any specific needs (including transportation assistance for large groups) to make it as easy as possible for them to get to the event:

  • Middle Schools
  • High Schools
  • Colleges & Universities
  • Churches
  • Community Centers
  • Women’s Organizations
  • Youth Organizations
  • Alternative Housing

All Leads and Ambassadors get free tickets and of course all girls are free as well.
