Welcome to I'RAISE Community Service Volunteer Opportunity!

At I'RAISE, we have an exciting Youth Life Coach Volunteer opportunity to make a meaningful impact on the lives of young black girls by being part of our See Her Be Her Coaching Program by fostering mentorship, guidance, and empowerment.

Make a significant difference in shaping the future of these young girls in our See Her Be Her Coaching Program. We believe that representation matters, and by becoming a Youth Life Coach, the volunteers will contribute to breaking down barriers and inspiring the next generation of black female leaders.

Youth Life Coach Responsibilities:

  4. Promoting positive self-esteem, self-confidence, and skills.

  5. Encouraging our girls to take a deeper look into the stereotypes they have faced or will face and how to overcome them.

  6. Cultivating an image of what it means to be a Black girl/woman for them.

  7. Teaching etiquette and black excellence.

  8. Providing individual and small-group instruction to adapt the curriculum to the needs of students with varying intellectual and artistic abilities, and to accommodate a variety of instructional activities and workshops.
