> Volunteer Position- Woman Mentor or Intern
Mentors will work as equal partners with a team of Girl Delegates,
ages 12-17, to prepare for and attend Girls International Forum’s
(GIF) International Girls Summit, to be held in the United States
in July 2006. Women Mentors will work with their team to contribute
to the development of a “Girls’ Platform for Action”
and help Girl Delegates plan and implement “Action Projects”
that further the goals of the Platform.
Volunteer times are flexible and the amount of time required of
Women Mentors will vary throughout the project. Women Mentors will
meet with their teams at least once a month for approximately four
hours. Women Mentors should expect to spend additional time, as
needed, to communicate with team members and other GIF volunteers
and staff; participate in activities and events to accomplish Action
Project goals; and provide general support to Girl Delegates.
