General Program Volunteers-Outreach

We are looking for volunteers interested in helping with programs in our Oak Ridge and Knoxville Outreach sites!

General Program Overview

Where: We have various locations throughout Knoxville and Oak Ridge. Location will be based upon what day/school you are interested in volunteering in.

When: Outreach programs run Monday-Friday starting the first week of September. Different programs run daily. The program facilitated will depend upon what day you decide to volunteer and at what school you choose to do so.


Operation SMART builds girls' skills and interest in science, math, and technology.  Hands-on activities give girls the opportunity to explore, ask questions, and solve problems.  Components of Operation SMART include: Eureka!, GirlsLink, GirlsLink Gets SMART, Girls Dig It, and Career Action.


Media Literacy encourages girls to think critically about media messages and fosters their awareness of the scope and power of the media and its effects of girls and women.  Girls gain media literacy skills that enhance their ability to critically examine and advocate for change in entertainment, news and advertising media.


Project Bold strengthens girls' abilities to lead safer lives.  Girls develop strategies for self-defense (including physical techniques), for seeking out and talking with caring adults about personal violence, and for advocating on violence issues for girls and young women.  Age-appropriate components include Kid-Ability! (Kid Jr.), Action for Safety and Taking Action.

Economic Literacy introduces girls as young as six to basic financial concepts, including money management and investment.  The program explores how money affects us locally and globally as it fosters development of the skills needed to be financially self-sufficient.
