Meet GENaustin’s Volunteer of the Month, Dana!


How did you come to find out about GENaustin? How long have you been involved?

I found out about GENaustin about a year and a half ago by googling “women’s issues volunteering austin.” GENaustin was one of the first results, and as soon as I read about club I knew I wanted to volunteer, and I submitted my application and called the office that day. I have been a volunteer since September 2011.

What do you like most about being a GENaustin volunteer?

I love getting to spend time with a group of amazing and intelligent middle school girls each week talking about issues that are important to me. The best part, though, is playing games and giggling with the girls – they’re so much fun!

What would you say to someone who is thinking about volunteering with GENaustin?

GENaustin is an organization that is doing really important hands-on work in our community, and it gives you the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of girls on a personal level. Also, the organization itself is excellent to work with – they are flexible and kind, and provide great support.

Want to improve the lives of girls in our community? Getting involved is easy, just contact for more info!
