Island Girl Power Southern Clubhouse needs Volunteer
Island Girl Power (IGP), a local prevention program focusing on offering positive activities and role models for young girls and their families, was founded in 2001 and opened its Southern Clubhouse in partnership with the P.D. Hemlani Foundation, Ltd. (PDHF) in 2014.
For over a year, the Southern Clubhouse has been offering activities, classes, guest speakers, positive role models, career counseling, computer access, public service activities, field trips, gardening, cooking classes, mentoring opportunities, and much more to girls ages 7 to 14.
The Southern Clubhouse is requesting volunteer assistance to further its mission to decrease the occurrence of teen pregnancy, suicide, substance and sexual abuse by empowering young ladies to make healthy lifestyle choices and encourage positive self-esteem. Specifically, volunteer assistance is needed for the following:
• Assistant Supervisors (adults or youth/students of at least 16 years of age) to assist with weekly activities and/or field trips.
• Public Relations Coordinators to set up displays at Parent-Teacher Association events, mayor’s offices, community centers, and fiestas to advertise Southern Clubhouse activities.
• Program Coordinators to assist with meal planning (nutrition research and education), and coordinate guest speakers/positive role models for weekly events.
Volunteers will provide their services at the Southern Clubhouse every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and assist with "at home" planning (such as the Outreach and Program/Meal planning).
