Introducing camp mentors
Girls on Fire is welcoming input from professionals outside the fire, emergency and disaster management services into our camps in 2022.
We’re seeking to build enduring connections with youth-related professionals that have an interest in improving the outcomes available for teen girls.
Camp mentors are volunteers who come from other backgrounds related to education that are outside the fire, emergency and disaster related roles.
Examples of these roles include:
- Academics in education, mental health, and community development
- Mental health, youth and social workers
- Other youth-related fields.
And/or in fields that have a focus on inclusion and diversity across race, sexuality, gender and disability.
For example, this may include:
- Indigenous community leaders
- LGBTQIA+ community leaders
- Disability advocates
These roles are to help strengthen and steer leadership initiatives and are subject to availability.
To register your interest, contact us.
