Women of the Word’s mission is to empower women from all nations to achieve independence, economic success, and a voice in the community. We do this through three distinct programs: Customized Service and Advocacy, Economic Empowerment, and Community Development. 

The Volunteer Program at Women of the World seeks to create opportunities for service-minded individuals to assist WoW’s clients and programs. WoW utilizes volunteers primarily through the mentorship program, where local volunteers are matched with clients 1:1 to help the clients with their individual needs. The Volunteer Coordinator will recruit, train, match, and support mentors and mentees, as well as provide reports to management on the scope and effectiveness of the mentorship program.
