Empowering Women All Around the World – Economically | Socially | Politically

Volunteers

Leadership Development is just around the corner (July 14 – 27) and as always, we will need our incredible army of volunteers. Leadership Development volunteer spots in the Dallas area are now open!

We have all heard the adage, “it takes a village.” This is especially true for the PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS® Leadership Program. It takes a village of enthusiastic and dedicated individuals of various expertise to empower the business women dedicated to bringing peace and a vital economy to their war-torn and emerging communities such as Kabul, Afghanistan and Kigali, Rwanda. The PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS® village is a fun community to be working in – full of smiles, laughter and a burning desire for knowledge and experience – where friendships are forged and a new global community is formed.

PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS® Leadership Program Volunteers often say they learn more than the Afghan and Rwandan business women they are working with. Whether you’re a mentor, a volunteer at the registration desk during Leadership Development, or a social fundraiser, each role is as important as the next. 

Visit the Volunteer Procedure Manual for more details; opportunities available, task descriptions and more.

"Volunteerism is good for the health of people who receive social support, but also good for the health of people who offer their help."
