Girls Incorporated’s mission is to inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. We do this through a wide variety of programming that we offer daily. Girls Inc. always encourages interested adults to get involved in Girls Inc. Programs. Volunteers are needed to assist with homework activities, serving meals, field trips, job shadowing, programming and more. Help is needed between (3:00pm – 7:00pm) Monday – Friday during the school year and all day (7:00am – 6:00pm) during the summer. We would love to have individuals or groups (up to 20) planning on participating once or on a continuing basis.

10831 Old Mill Road, Ste 400, Omaha, NE 68154 ~ www.bigomaha.org
Be a friend to a child who needs your support and enjoy doing things together out in the community a few times a month. Children ages 7-14 years are enrolled by their parent or legal guardian. The program matches a professionally screened and trained adult volunteer or married couple with a child to participate in community activities they both enjoy. Volunteers commit to meeting with their Little Brother or Little Sister 2-4 times a month for a minimum of one year. A Match Support Specialist is in regular contact with the Big, the Little, and the parent for the length of the relationship to provide support, ideas for activities, and to ensure that matches are meeting on a regular basis.
Requirements: Must be 19 years of age or older, be a high school graduate or possess a GED, and have a valid driver’s license and proof of vehicle insurance. All volunteers must pass a criminal background check, screening, provide four character references, and complete a minimum of two hours of training before being matched with a child. Knowing Spanish is an added benefit, but not necessary.
We are also in need of groups of volunteers at our fundraising events.
