Want to become a volunteer?

Are you ready to change lives?

Volunteers are critical to the success of the Boys & Girls Clubs. With your time, energy, and expertise, we are better able to prepare our Members for great futures. Volunteers have the power to impact our Members in a way that can truly change their lives forever.

We typically need volunteers interested in one of the following four areas:

1- Individual Volunteers

Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older. Please note that we do not allow volunteers completing court-ordered/recommended community service (no matter the offense) to work in our Clubs.

  • First step Click here to pay for the Background Check
  • Second step– You will be directed to the application after payment is complete
  • Third step– Lindsey Doerr will be reaching out personally via email to get the rest of the process complete

2- Group Volunteers

Looking for a way to get your employees, co-workers, friends, or family involved? Choose a project from our Menu of Opportunities!

To set up a group volunteer event, please fill out the application form, and Lindsey Doerr, Volunteer Engagement Manager, will reach out shortly!

Thank you for considering Boys & Girls Clubs for your employee community engagement – we need your help! Many businesses that support employee volunteerism also provide financial support to their charity partners. If your company offers corporate sponsorships or charitable giving, please provide the name and email for the person responsible when reaching out to Lindsey.

3- Interns/Work-Study Students

Are you a student or a recent graduate looking for an opportunity to gain experience in youth development, special events planning, marketing, or other aspects of non-profit work? Please fill out a Work Study/Internship application form.
