Get Involved

Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Image Initiative.

The Image Initiative, Inc.®, is a 501(c) 3 organization overseen by a Board of Directors and registered as a charitable organization in New York state. The organization is currently 100% volunteer-run. Without the commitment of our volunteers, we would not have the woman-power to provide our programming and mentoring. The Image Initiative continuously seeks new volunteers and partners who share in the mission, vision, and goal of enlightening, engaging, and empowering as many of our young women as possible.

The benefits of volunteering and or partnering with the Image Initiative, Inc., include:

  • Serving as an advocate for the on-going empowerment of young women in Syracuse
  • Reinvesting into the communities our partners serve
  • Providing role models and mentors to our young women
