The need is great and growing; therefore, Girls Incorporated must appeal to and depend upon interested volunteers who care about the future of young girls, enjoy being with them and want to help them become good citizens and happy, well adjusted women. A volunteer does not need to be an experienced teacher to lead an activity. Genuine interest, enthusiasm and the desire to serve are far more important. If you would like to share your time just call the main office of Girls Incorporated of Columbus, 706-683-0809. What will you receive in return for your gift of love? A satisfaction that cannot be measured!
