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.
