How to find a Volunteer Opportunity:
Volunteers are needed to assist with our programs in a variety of ways. These opportunities can be found on our partner site, Hands On Atlanta. Simply navigate to the link below and then click on “See All Volunteer Opportunities With This Organization.” Volunteer opportunities take place at our center located in Marietta, GA unless otherwise noted. Navigate to Hands On Atlanta Here
Time Commitment and Scheduling:
Our Afterschool program runs from 2:30pm to 6:30pm Monday through Friday, with service opportunities for the full afternoon or for Homework Help from 5pm to 6pm. Our summer programs are more flexible, as the center is open from 7am to 6pm.
Volunteers are asked to commit one day per week for 4 weeks. After 4 weeks the Volunteer Manager will check in to make sure the volunteer is still happy with this role. You must register through the Hands On Atlanta site for each day that you would like to volunteer. This helps us to plan programming and anticipate who will be at the center. Should you not be able to make to a scheduled volunteer opportunity, please email email@example.com and sign on to remove yourself from the project.
Background Check and Orientation:
Minimum age to volunteer is 18 and a background check and orientation is required prior to starting volunteerism with Girls Incorporated of Greater Atlanta. To begin the background check, please visit https://app.verifiedvolunteers.com. Create an account and enter the Good Deed Code b9anh42 to complete the background check. Volunteers are asked to help pay for the cost of the background check ($30), but if this is a hardship please feel free to contact our Volunteer Manager directly at 679-686-1740 x 206 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you have completed the background check process, you will be contacted by the Volunteer Manager and cleared to register for our opportunities. If you would like to learn more about volunteering and complete the orientation prior to investing in your background check, feel free to contact the Volunteer Manager at email@example.com.
