One moment please...
2017-2018 Y-WE Volunteer Application

Thanks for your interest in volunteering with Young Women Empowered (Y-WE). Our programs and events are only possible thanks to the commitment of our many volunteers. We have a range of volunteer opportunities, including helping with set up and clean up at our events, procuring donations of food and other items, offering participants a job shadowing opportunity at your workplace, and tutoring or assisting with our retreats. When you volunteer with Y-WE, you become part of a high-spirited, intergenerational, multicultural community of folks ages 13 and up who are dedicated to building a positive future for themselves and the world. 

Please look over the application below and prepare to complete and submit it in one session. You WILL NOT be able to save the form mid-way through. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Your Commitment to Y-WE:

We are thankful that you want to volunteer with Y-WE! We will do our best to place all eligible applicants in desired roles. The most important criterion for acceptance is your commitment to the job you sign up for. Y-WE youth, mentors and staff will depend on you to show up on time and participate fully.  Please note that all volunteers who work with youth must pass a background check.

Scholarship Fund Contribution
Y-WE programs are offered on a sliding scale and the majority of Y-WE youth participants are from low-income families. Some of our mentors have requested the option to sponsor youth participants by contributing to our scholarship fund. The cost of full tuition for one youth in Y-WE Lead or Y-WE Nature Connections is $1,000. The majority of our participants can only afford to pay $25-$150. If you would like to make a donation to our scholarship fund and help ensure that Y-WE youth can continue to have this life-changing experience, we welcome your support. You are under no obligation to contribute, participation is entirely voluntary.
