Nowadays, everybody’s life is busy beyond capacity. The ability to multi-task is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. Although a demanding schedule may limit one’s involvement with Women Like Us, it surely does not eliminate all possibilities. There are many ways you can become involved with Women Like Us and take part in creating a better community. We understand life is hectic during the best of times and we want you to be as involved as you’d like to be.
First and foremost, you can simply share your ideas and networks with Women Like Us to help us grow as an organization and a mentor program.
Secondly, you can become a volunteer. With our major events scheduled well in advance, you can volunteer at specific events that fit into your own schedule. We always appreciate an extra helping hand. There are an endless amount of programs and boards you can donate some of your time to and take an active role in making decisions about program guidelines, awards, participation and event leadership.
If you are looking for a one-on-one role with the girls in our program, consider becoming a Mentor! Teenagers always need a good role model to look up to, listen to, and to be heard by. Share your life story, career and life advice, and anything you feel will encourage, empower and engage young girls! Taking part in the mentor program is one of the most rewarding experiences for not only the mentee but also the mentor.
Additionally, becoming a sponsor is a great way to show your support for Women Like Us. The love from our sponsors keeps our programs running and growing.
However, there is something extraordinary you can do every single day. Just by simply listening to a girl express herself, her hopes, her dreams, her woes, you can make a difference. It may not seem like much, but it means the world to them. Girls are finding their voices. If we listen to them, we can do incredible things to change the world.
