Write. Create. Mentor. Volunteer with WriteGirl.

Volunteer with WriteGirl

WriteGirl is accepting applications from women and men writers to mentor our diverse teens at various school sites throughout Los Angeles County. We are currently looking for volunteers with daytime/weekday availability to help with our In-Schools & Bold Ink programs. Help our teens explore their creative voice!

Applications due February 13th

If you have any questions about the mentor program please contact WriteGirl at membership@writegirl.org or call us at 213-253-2655.

Next Training Date: February 18th

Apply your professional skills, explore your personal passions, and make a difference in a teen's life. All you need are tenacious communication skills, a love of writing, and the willingness to show up. Once we have reviewed your application, we will contact you about attending a volunteer training session.

I love being a part of WriteGirl. It’s even fun without a mentee, because now, I can claim every girl as my own.
