Mission Statement: (See Web Site For Updated Information)
Are you passionate about girls health and education? Do you enjoy teaching youth? Serve as a teaching fellow with Girls Health Ed

Girls Health Ed is a 501(c)(3) organization providing accurate and comprehensive health education programming to girls and young women ages 8-17. Girls Health Ed is a volunteer, community based organization. We exist to help girls make healthy, informed decisions about their lives by having teaching fellows from relevant fields teach seminars in local schools and community centers. Currently we operate in Washington, DC, New York City, Los Angeles, Nairobi, Kenya and Kogelo, Kenya.

Girls Health Ed provides educational workshops to girl youth, emphasizing 4 key aspects including nutrition body image, fitness, personal care/hygiene and reproductive health. We want to assist schools that are not able to have PE, health education and other supplemental yet crucial classes due to lack of funding, as well as to help girls and young women who are not able to obtain information on their health from their home environments. We hope to instill confidence through knowledge—girls who are exposed to our program walk away with something valuable that they are able to use as a reference throughout their adult lives.

Time Commitment

Teaching Fellows generally commit 1 hour a week during the course of the workshop series, which is typically 5 weeks. Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of one school year.

The Director of Programs and Outreach and Education and Outreach Coordinator will support the volunteer teaching fellow. Teaching fellows will be provided detailed lesson plans and materials. (If volunteers are interested in developing plans and bringing in materials for their class, they are always welcome to do coordinate this with staff.)

General Requirements

A bachelor’s degree, or currently working toward a degree
Experience in community health, public health, women’s health, or girls health encouraged
Experience with the design, development and implementation of educational curriculum, encouraged, but not required
