More and more organizations are looking for people that is well rounded & volunteering is no longer just an option on the resume but has become a main feature. Companies invest in Community Programming and volunteer work has become an important factor when hiring a person. EmpowHer is designed to help young women between the age of 15-30 to become part of their community through volunteerism while helping them develop skills that will empower them to become an ambassador of change in their community.
