Mentors needed for girls programs on campus

Alamance Girls in Motion, a program for fourth- and fifth-grade girls offering health education, physical activity and mentorship, and Girls to Empowered Teens, a similar program for sixth- and seventh-grade girls, will be starting at the end of September and are in need of Elon female students to volunteer as mentors. 

Want to act like a kid again, while hanging out with kids? Consider volunteering in either Alamance Girls in Motion (AGIM) or Girls to Empowered Teens (GET), programs that bring girls in grades 4 through 7 to campus for physical activity, health education and mentorship.

Female students who volunteer will be matched one-on-one with a young girl for weekly sessions of fun, mentorship and activity. AGIM is offered on Wednesday afternoons from 3:45 to 5:15 p.m. beginning on Sept. 27 and continuing through Nov. 8, while GET is held on Thursdays from 4 to 5:30 p.m. beginning on Sept 28 and continuing through Nov. 2.

A training session is required before the programs begin, and an orientation for volunteers, participating girls and their parents will be held on Sept. 20 for AGIM and Sept. 21. for GET. AGIM has been offered on campus since 2006 and GET is in its fifth season. To learn more or to volunteer, please contact Liz Bailey in Exercise Science at 278-5862 or
