The Washington School for Girls
The Washington School for Girls (WSG) was founded in 1998 by the Sisters of the Holy Child Jesus, the National Council of Negro Women, and the Religious of Jesus and Mary. The WSG provides tuition-free education to young girls who are at risk of leaving school prematurely and are living in an underserved area of Washington, DC. WSG also offers a graduate support program to its graduates during high school.


Volunteers Needed: WSG needs volunteers to tutor individual or small groups of students, assist in the library during the school day, and for other professional services as needed (i.e., accounting).
