We are always looking for inspiring volunteers to donate their time and help impact our students' futures. For additional information on any of our volunteer events, please email us or call 212-207-3221 ext 261.

Brag Party

Each event will take place from 9:00am to 12:00 pm

We need energetic volunteers to help teenage girls learn the art of bragging and building self-confidence! Peggy Klaus, communication guru and author, will lead all participants in developing important soft skills. This high- energy, experiential workshop provides insights, strategies, tools, and techniques for conquering the little voice inside your head that whispers self-defeating thoughts. By the end of the workshop, students and volunteers will know how to toot their own horn (in the right way, of course!) about the great things they have accomplished.

Dates:

  • April 19, 2016 at the New York Academy of Medicine
  • April 21, 2016 at the New York Academy of Medicine

TYWLS Tech Explorers

July 11–29

TYWLS Tech Explorers is an intensive three-week summer program that strives to teach students to work within the realms of JavaScript, HTML, and CSS, and provides them with the tools they need to create their own web applications. We are looking for companies to host 40 students at their offices for a day of coding and to give them the opportunity to work with, learn from, and speak with professional software developers and programmers about how they can bridge the gender gap in the Computer Science field.

For more information, please email us.

TYWLS Explorers

July 11–29

TYWLS Explorers exposes students to three weeks of summer fun and exploration around New York City! Daily excursions are planned for 40 students around the tri-state area to exciting locations such as sporting events, parks, museums, colleges, corporations, and more! Our goal is to provide our students with a variety of experiences that are not only fun, but also challenge their ideas about what they like, give them the opportunity to try something new, and become stronger, braver young women leaders of the future. We are looking for companies to host our students for a day to introduce them to a new industry and the types of jobs that are available after college.
