As BGV strives to accomplish its mission of developing and supporting sustainable
We are confident you will find that volunteering with BGV is mutually beneficial
The following is an explanation of the different ways you can get
Faculty: Faculty members are individuals that teach a class as part of the nine-week series. The opportunity to teach during the nine-week session is more limited. However, workshops/lectures/panel discussions on topics not covered in class are offered to delve deeper into subjects introduced during the class session.
Mentor: A mentor is someone assigned to work with one of our finalists for the entire 9-week education session. Mentoring requires a substantial time commitment (one meeting per week). Mentors are asked to help the finalists review homework, make community connections, and provide general support and advice throughout the session.
Coach: A coach is someone who meets with the bad girls during the hour following class for brief (15 to 20 minute) coaching sessions. Coaching sessions take place after each class and require a one-hour commitment. If the BGV curriculum includes a class in your area of expertise we would ask that you try to attend that coaching session. However, if you are unavailable on that day, or if you offer expertise in an area that we do not cover in our curriculum (for example, insurance), we would still invite you to attend a post class coaching session. Other coaching opportunities include the Samuel Adams Speed Coaching event that focuses on individuals in food/beverage/hospitality. We also hope to offer coaching after workshops and panel discussions.
Homework Review: Our finalists are required to complete homework. If you have expertise in a particular area, you may sign up to review homework in that particular area. We hope to eventually allow non-finalist class participants to submit homework for review. The commitment is flexible and reviewers may choose how many items they wish to review.
Resource List: If a finalist is having difficulty in a particular area of his or her business,
BGV Volunteer: BGV, like any other business, has administrative needs. We also hold several events and need individuals willing to help with set-up, check-in, etc. and need resources in a variety of other areas including catering and printing. In addition, our organization is in a critical building period and is preparing for expansion. We are looking for individuals interested in offering guidance and resources to aid us in this process.
