Description

At ZGiRLS, we’re on a mission to change the world by empowering girls to develop unshakable inner strength. We do this by equipping girls aged 11-14 with the tools and perspectives they need to build self-worth, embrace challenges, and advocate for themselves.

As a volunteer ZGiRLS Program Facilitator, you will co-lead the transformative online ZGiRLS Confidence Program, a 4-week program that meets for one hour each week and fosters an online community of belonging and courage. You will guide participants through the ZGiRLS Curriculum™ alongside our inspirational ZGiRLS Mentors, who are professional or Olympic female athletes.

This unique volunteer role demands a passion for teaching, a knack for engaging discussions, and a commitment to empowering the next generation with confidence and resilience.

As you consider joining this dynamic team as a volunteer, we encourage you to reflect on your skills, experiences, and passion for making a difference. We value a diversity of perspectives and life backgrounds, and are excited to learn more about what you can bring to our community.
