We meet biweekly during the school year. We need volunteers to help at the meetings which happen at our Riverhead, Bellport, and Poospatuck meeting locations. If you can help, please email us with the date you are interested in volunteering.
Perhaps you would be interested in teaching the girls? We have had people lead a wide variety of lessons at our weekly meetings: arts and crafts, esteem building, nutrition, etc. Professionals can come in and explain their jobs, or bring the girls to where they work. Let us know if this is something you may be interested in doing.
Help with Events
Throughout the year we have many different events: holiday celebrations, dances, fundraisers, etc. We welcome your participation! Let us know how and when you'd be interested in helping.
Please email the following address and tell us how you'd like to help:
"I love the Butterfly Effect Project because it allows me to be myself and to step out of my comfort zone with many other girls, younger and older!
I love the bonds that have come out of this program as well!"
Azharia A., Member, 17 years old
"I have been a Butterfly for fours years and I love every minute of it!
The program has opened up a new environment for me.
It has connected me with other girls that I didn't think I would bond with."
Jaylen L., Member, 15 years old
