There are a number of ways that you, your colleagues or members of your network can support us:
Becoming a member
Membership costs £10 per year (£20 per year from summer 2018) or £400 for lifelong membership. GFS members are at the heart of our work. Join a growing group of people who play a part in everything we do – and who are determined to help us achieve our mission.
Members benefit from a variety of opportunities:
- Receive member-only communications
- Be invited to attend member only meetings and networking events
- Engage in and promote our advocacy and campaigning work
- Inform our policies and strategic direction.
Our members care about the future of girls and young women. If you do too, please join us today!
Becoming an Ambassador
Ways that our Ambassadors support us include actively promoting us and what we do; speaking at one of our local/regional/national events; and engaging girls and young women to join a local GFS group.
Visiting a GFS group
Do you have particular skills, abilities, experience or interest that a group of girls or young women would enjoy learning about? Could you run a short session?
We are always looking for women in the world of work to visit our groups and talk to the girls and young women about what they do and how they got where they are.
Volunteering for a GFS group
Either through direct engagement with girls and young women, helping with activities one night a week, or indirect support through supporting marketing, bookkeeping or event planning and delivery, for example. Do you have any skills or abilities that your local group could benefit from?
Hosting a group of girls or young women
Could you and your colleagues host a group of girls or young women for half a day? Tell them what your organisation do; introduce them to members of staff; talk to them about the different jobs; explain that there might be opportunities for them in organisations like yours?
Providing pro bono product, service or support
Like every other organisation we: induct, train and support people (HR); manage finances; develop, deliver and evaluate a programme of activities and events; market and communicate; develop and implement strategies and much more. Can you or your organisation help us to become more efficient and effective?
