Coaching with Girls United

Volunteers will receive an intensive coaching course to prepare for the field, as well as a Spanish language course to equip you with the right basic language skills to interact with the girls and local community. You will be introduced to the Girls United methodology, and learn to provide fun, engaging and challenging sessions that implement our methodology.

The joy that Girls United created in every person who participated in this project was super exciting.
