Service

We teach girls to build community and to give back.

We build community service into our program to develop strong, compassionate female leaders. We strive to build healthy environments for all people and give everyone equal opportunities.

Why Community Service?

According to the UNCE Young Volunteers fact sheet, youth who volunteer are more likely to do well in school, graduate, and vote. Young volunteers expand their social circle and enhance their social awareness and feel like a valued contributor of society.

Our girls have the opportunity to run soccer and leadership camps for other girls; to travel to other countries and help with the environment; to conduct used-clothing and equipment drives at their schools; to host tournaments; to speak at events; and more.

WAYS to SERVE

  • Organize clothing and equipment drives for girls in Nicaragua and in San Francisco’s Tenderloin

  • Travel internationally to less-served countries

  • Volunteer as Junior Coaches at our free after-school sites

  • Help out at our events
    A great way to get started is with the Anne Wagner women’s soccer tournament, which takes place every August!
