Thank You Spooktacular Volunteers

Girlstart teamed up with the Bullock Texas State History Museum on October 27th to host our annual Spooky Extravaganza! The weather was a bit dreary outside but that didn’t stop hundred of kids and families from partaking in spooky fun.

Volunteers led booth activities such as boo bubbles, paper witch brooms, Halloween slingshots, Ozobots, and more. Thank you to all the volunteers for making the day possible and fun for the Austin community!

Thank You Houston Fall STEM Extravaganza Volunteers

A big thank you to all of the volunteers who joined us and helped lead activities and encourage kids in STEM! We wouldn’t be able to host events like these without our amazing volunteers’ support!

Thank You Summer Camp Volunteers

This summer, Girlstart hosted seven weeks of camp at the Girlstart STEM Center in Austin, TX. Each week we had high school girls join us and help with the day to day operations of camp, including prepping snacks, cleaning camp areas, assisting in lessons, prepping materials for activities, and much more.

This year 22 high school students joined us and donated a total of 622 hours of their time. Of the 22 volunteers, 10 were past Girlstart participants. Thanks to these volunteers, camps were a success and girls enjoyed their Girlstart Summer Camp experience.
