GlamourGals isn't just for high school volunteers--college students can start a chapter too.
Benefits of being a GG College Volunteer:
-The opportunity to meet like-minded individuals with similar goals
-Building your resume and professional development
-Meeting volunteer requirements for your major, club, sorority and scholarships or awards
-Leader recognition on campus
What is a GlamourGals Chapter? The chapter system is the way we organize our volunteers across the country. Chapters are operated as college clubs and must have three leaders, who manage and oversee their local chapter. These leaders are the Chapter President, Co-President, and Rally Girl.
Your chapter and volunteers will be required to register and track your progress and hours online at GGChapters.org.
To register your chapter, you will need to complete 5 steps:
1. Enter your School name, address, phone number and your advisor's name and phone number.
2. Enter your Senior Home name, address, phone number, and contact info for the Recreation or Activities Director
3. Enter your Chapter Leaders' name, phone number, and email address.

The Program Fellowship was started in 2012.
The GlamourGals Fellowship Program is an opportunity for enrolled, full-time college students who have been GG Correspondents for at least three months and want to enhance their leadership skills. Through the fellowship, GG Fellows will learn about the not-for-profit sector working with the GG staff who have over 30 years of cumulative experience. The GG Fellowship will offer hands on experience in Chapter development and expansion, curriculum management, and, direct services.

Kira West became involved with GlamourGals in the summer of 2012 as an Event Correspondent. As an Event Correspondent, she was involved in social media outreach, soliciting corporate sponsorships, and writing both articles and press releases. It was her first makeover in May that had the biggest impact on Kira and made her realize how valuable and necessary GlamourGals is. She is very passionate and excited to continue work with GlamourGals because she has seen the incredbile effects the program has on both the elderly and teens. Kira has worked with nonprofits since the seventh grade, including Fifth Avenue Committee and She's the First. Kira is currently a student at Cornell University with interests in marketing, entrepreneurship, and nonprofits.
