Ruth McBride Scholarship
Girls in the Game
Identify prominent women with interesting careers, and set up interviews to discuss health, leadership and important issues. Volunteers are needed to chaperone events, and Girls in the Game is also looking for professional women, either in groups or as individuals, to interview in the Women Leaders Interview Program.
GameDays: One-Day Events
Put your sports, health or leadership skills to good use during a Game Day event by leading activities for one of the day’s topics or playing alongside the girls. We always need help guiding participants through the rotations and maintaining a fun, safe and educational environment.
Are you a technology whiz who could contribute to the efficiency and success of Girls in the Game operations? If so, we could use your help to keep our systems in tip-top shape.
Are you interested in a specific area? Do you possess expertise in something not covered in our current volunteer program? Please let us know and we can look into matching you with the perfect project for your expertise.
