Girls At Work

Empowering girls one woodworking project at a time

2019 Goals:

Our priority is to continue to develop a strong curriculum that has the broadest impact on self-esteem building. Programs will be studied and scripted to ensure the most efficient use of time and resources, as well as clearly show the impact of our programs. Organizational goals include fundraising, marketing, communications, resource development, in-kind donations and developing a solid infrastructure. Volunteer resources continue to be developed to align appropriately to help provide valuable resources in program preparation, fundraising and advocacy efforts. We identified board development and recruitment to prioritize and further grow the organization and further our mission.

Fundraising Events:

We look forward to hosting our 5th Annual DIVA Comedy Night in the Spring of 2019. Throughout the year, our Corporate Team Builds not only provide a great out-of-office experience for people to grow in their workplace development, they also get to choose a nonprofit that they believe in and donate picnic tables that they built. If you would like to have a private party, troop, bachelorette, birthday or event build, we will work with you to make that happen. These all support our mission of reaching more impoverished girls who need building up.

Giving Opportunities:

Girls at Work is able to empower girls through the generosity of others. We welcome interested businesses, organizations and individuals in supporting our continued efforts as we broaden our reach. Giving opportunities include, but by no means are limited to, individual or corporate gifts, event sponsorship, grant opportunities, recurring donations, memorial gifts, planned giving and endowments.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Volunteer resources are critical to Girls at Work. We offer an array of options that allow for any skill set to participate in supporting our mission. Our current needs include, committee members: specific to fundraising, operations, marketing, volunteers and programming curriculum; material preparation: assist with wood cutting and material handling for future classes; event volunteers: sponsorship solicitors, set-up/breakdown crews; workshop facilitators: individuals or organizations offering their skill sets in additional STEM/STEAM focused areas; assistant instructors: facilitators during Build Me Up Summer Camps; office assistance: phones, data entry, filing, your passion and skills wanted.
