Volunteer Opportunities

There are several ways to get involved and positively influence young people at Boys & Girls Clubs:

Make A Difference – Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest County is a great way to make a difference in the life of a child.  There are many ways you can get involved at The Club.  Have you ever thought of coaching a sports team?  Teaching a class like painting or jump rope?  Are you detailed orientated?  We are always in need of help in the office. Are you outgoing and love people, you could be an Club Ambassador, learn about The Clubs and be a cheerleader in the community.

General Club Volunteer – Clubs need dedicated volunteers on weekdays between the hours of 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. to help run programs and assist with general Club duties.  The needs vary by Club and fluctuate throughout the year.  If you are interested in helping a specific Club, please download and complete the Volunteer Interest Form.  Volunteers are processed and scheduled for orientation each January, June and September.  We ask that you commit to volunteering for a 6 month period and for a minimum of 2-3 hours each week.
