Community

Leadership

Our chapters are organized by student leaders. 

Our Leadership Initiative teaches volunteers to become leaders in their chapters and their communities.

Growth

Through mentorship and training, the GlamourGals National team supports the personal and professional development of our volunteers. We offer opportunities for students to be rewarded.

 

 
I find the work beautiful because of the reciprocity between the two parties — the more profound the elderly’s experiences and happiness, the more profound the volunteer’s personal growth.
— Dr. Kimiko Tanaka, Assistant Professor at Marywood University School of Social Work and Visiting Fellow at Yale University School of Medicine
