Volunteers needed for "What About Me"

The Women’s Fund for Health Education and Research is currently seeking volunteers for our fall “What About Me” (WAM?) Young Women’s Health Education Program.

With a focus on building resiliency and prevention, this health education program teaches young women the essential skills needed to establish good personal health habits and develop into strong, healthy women. The Women’s Fund’s ten-week curriculum targets multi-cultural populations in the Houston and Harris County area.

The WAM? program will be starting this fall at local middle schools, and we are in the process of assigning volunteers to schools. Volunteers would facilitate a class one day a week, at the same time and location each week.
