Volunteer

Student Leadership Network volunteer programs offer diverse and meaningful opportunities for individuals and companies to engage with our students and contribute to their success. We are always looking for inspiring volunteers to donate their time and help impact our students’ futures.

Ways to Volunteer

Cool Women, Hot Jobs

Be a career mentor for an exciting morning at TYWLS! We need volunteers from diverse personal and professional backgrounds who are eager to share their educational and professional journeys with students. You will connect with students in grades 6–9 in small groups to share your journey to success. It’s always fun and rewarding to experience the TYWLS sisterhood!

BRAG! Party

Join us for a high-energy morning spent learning the arts of self-confidence and bragging. Often compared to an executive coaching session, this workshop leverages the talents of Peggy Klaus, communications guru and author, as she leads all participants in strategies and techniques for communicating your worth. Volunteers are paired with high school juniors who are preparing for college interviews. At the end of the workshop, you will be more than a little impressed with yourself and the students.

Create Career Pathways

Host students at your organization for an unforgettable volunteer experience. Team up with Student Leadership Network to host TYWLS students at your workplace. Students will spend time meeting with you staff and learning more about career pathways in your industry.

TYWLS Works

Create an unforgettable experience at your office by hosting a small group of students. You and your company will host 12–14 high school sophomores for an abbreviated day of hands-on learning and career exploration. We will collaborate to create an agenda and activities for your team, ensuring a day that is mutually beneficial for students and volunteers alike.

TYWLS Tech Explorers

Host the next generation of entrepreneurs and coders for a visit at your workplace! This intensive three-week program challenges students to conceive, develop, code, and pitch real web applications that address issues and needs in their communities. We ask hosts to provide working space (and Wi-Fi) for thirty students, as well as a networking lunch for students and volunteers to talk college and careers. For most of the day, students work independently on their curriculum, but we love hosts with relevant expertise who want to send mentors or present mini-workshops!
