A Girls Inc. Media Professional commits to meeting their assigned Girls Group 2-5 times over an 8-week period. Media Professionals serve as a role model to girls and help the Group develop a Media Project reflecting the girls' voices to be shared at the Girls Inc.

The Media Professional Role:

  • Participate in one pre-program training with Girls Inc. staff via phone call
  • Meet with assigned Girls Group 2-5 times over an 8-week period (approximately 90 minutes per meeting)
  • Plan and facilitate hands-on activities for each meeting to introduce girls to your media field while collaborating with Girls Inc. staff to determine the Media Project's subject matter
  • Provide engaging and creative ways for career exploration
  • Help Girls Group complete a Media Project to be presented at the Girls Inc. 'Media Showcase' in late spring or early summer
