Annual Meeting- Join us in October to celebrate a year of resiliency.

Volunteer Opportunities

Girls Inc. of Worcester could not operate without the hundreds of volunteer service hours we receive every year from dedicated individuals. We welcome one-time and ongoing volunteers for a variety of in-person and virtual roles. Volunteers can choose between direct service (working with participants) or indirect service (providing administrative, fundraising, or general organizational support). Typical direct service volunteer opportunities may include leading a unit on financial literacy, hosting a STEM workshop, being a mentor or a guest speaker in one of our “A Day in the Life Of” events.  Volunteer time commitment ranges from one hour to long-term mentoring opportunities. In addition, we are always grateful to receive administrative, fundraising, or general organizational support. Learn more and sign up at or reach out to


Over the last year, Girls Inc. staff have adapted our research-based, hands-on programming to fit new and emerging participant needs. We pivoted our in-person programs to virtual and hybrid formats, as well as opened our doors to provide full day services to girls with the highest needs. Even as the pandemic raged on, we developed new and innovative programs like Eureka! JV and GirlPad to expand and enhance our service footprint. As the pandemic shifts and fades, we plan to keep building flexible, resilient programming models that inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold.
