Future Volunteer Opportunities

Cool Women, Hot Jobs

Hosted at The Young Women’s Leadership Schools

Cool Women, Hot Jobs (CWHJ) is a program in a series of signature career-day events at The Young Women’s Leadership Schools that seeks to expose sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students to professionals in various careers. We believe that if you can see it, you can be it. Volunteers visit the schools to speak with students about their college and career paths, and to share lessons for success. Volunteers are able to engage directly with students in small groups during two morning periods at the beginning of the school day. In turn, students have the opportunity to ask questions and learn from volunteers.


Hosted at Various NYC Company Sites

TYWLS Works is a signature program at The Young Women’s Leadership Schools that engages our 10th grade students via hands on experiences in professional worksites throughout New York City. One hundred students across all 5 TYWLS locations will visit 10 partner companies, in small groups, for a day of interactive learning. We collaborate with company representatives to plan a day that is fun and rewarding for employee volunteers and students alike.

Jumpstart to College

Hosted at a NYC College Campus

Jumpstart to College is a signature event at The Young Women’s Leadership Schools that seeks to engage our TYWLS seniors in conversations related to the transition to college. This event brings professional volunteers, educators, and students together to share wisdom and advice and teach practical skills that relate to career and college readiness.

TYWLS Tech Explorers

Hosted at Various NYC Company Sites

TYWLS Tech Explorers is a dynamic, student-driven summer technology-intensive program for students at The Young Women’s Leadership Schools. Throughout this three-week “hack-a-thon” style program, girls are supported in developing a business and app inspired by a cause that they are passionate about. Students are given a small grant in seed money to build a prototype, design a company app, and then fund their initial product launch. Daily workshops will be held at various New York City companies so students are able to meet with employees who can support with project feedback and share advice on leadership skills, pitching, graphic design, coding, marketing strategies and more.
