Job Shadowing

This is an opportunity for young women in high school to see, first hand, the day-to-day routine of a career they are interested in pursuing. You will be matched with a student to experience any/all aspects of a given profession, and are encouraged to include them in whatever daily routines would be most educational, interesting and insightful.

Flash Mentor

Provide unique, 1:1 career and profession guidance to our young women in high school and college. Flash Mentoring is our informal, virtual mentoring program that provides ongoing, ad hoc opportunities for young women in high school and college to access professional women in careers that interest them. 

Career Accelerator

NGS’ virtual career prep program intended for senior high school and college women, ages 17-22, to prepare them for internships and future careers.

Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Mock Interviewers: Provide key feedback to help prepare students for interviewing for jobs or internships.
  • Scorers: Volunteers are asked to score award application items to determine a prize winner.
  • Career Speaker: Speakers are asked to facilitate a casual conversation via Zoom with a participant about their current career and professional journey.
  • Resume Reviewers: Help students build their resume!

As we continue to grow and expand where we deliver our programs, so does our need for amazing people like you to volunteer.

My favorite volunteer opportunities are those where I get to work directly with the students. These include doing mock interviews and helping edit their blog posts. They are impressive girls who make me hopeful and excited for the future of female leadership and the world it will create.
