In our efforts to promote flourishing communities, we help young women blossom into future leaders. However, as a 100% volunteer-based organization, we at Atlanta GLOW cannot provide excellence in that quest without a strong community of volunteers, volunteers who carry a passion and dedication to our mission.

OUR ONBOARDING PROCESS
Our onboarding process is described in detail below. In addition, before applying to become a volunteer, please download and review our New Volunteer Checklist.
STEP ONE: You complete and return our Volunteer Application. This simple application help us get to know your goals, interests, and background, and confirms your commitment to follow the policies and procedures outlined in our Policy and Procedure Manual.
The manual gives an overview of our organization and outlines information that will help you be successful in your new volunteer role.
STEP TWO: Our Volunteer Coordinator reaches out to schedule a Volunteer Orientation. Orientations are completed over the phone and typically lasts about 30-45 minutes. You will be provided with a Presentation to review prior the call.
STEP THREE: You complete a Background Check. There is a $25 nonrefundable administrative fee to cover the cost of the check. Follow the links at the left of this page to submit the fee and check.
Meanwhile, we will contact the References provided on your application.
STEP FOUR: Our mentoring program offers two 6-month cohorts in which mentors may be matched: January 1-June 30 and July 1-December 31. Mentors are matched only if a suitable match is available. We match according to 5 primary factors: location, industry, age, availability, and common interests, where appropriate, to ensure our participants are matched with a professional who aligns with their immediate needs. Mentors who have been selected for a match will be contacted within 30 days of the start date to confirm acceptance.
Note: There is no guarantee of a match, and a mentor might remain on a waiting list until a suitable match is available. There are other ways to stay involved in the meantime (i.e. workshops, events), so please stay tuned to our newsletters for other volunteer needs.
