Review for Girls Write Now, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was a volunteer intern at GWN for seven months before coming on board as the second full time staff member. Upon joining the organization as an intern, I immediately felt connected to the whole GWN community. I really feel that the community aspect of GWN is something that sets us apart from other mentoring organizations. I worked intimately with our amazing and inspiring group of mentors and mentees and was encouraged to involve myself in all aspects of the community and running of the organization. As an intern, I gained invaluable experience and knowledge about the workings of a nonprofit, and quickly decided that this was the field I wanted to work in. I've also had the opportunity to work with talented and brilliant women who have supported, encouraged, and challenged me, effecting my own growth as much as that of the teen girls we work with.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

getting to know the women and girls that make up the GWN community.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

passionate dedicated women who are willing to lend help and support.
