Your time is your most valuable asset.
USE IT TO MAKE A TRUE DIFFERENCE IN GIRLS’ LIVES.
Cool Girls provides an opportunity for girls from low-income communities to learn about themselves and others in a positive manner while instilling leadership, confidence and respect. Through after-school educational programs, mentoring and field trips, girls see that they can achieve anything they pursue by setting goals, working diligently and making good choices. Volunteers play a crucial role in helping us change the outcomes for these girls. Join us in making a real difference.
