VOLUNTEER COMMITMENT

We are always looking for volunteers who are able to commit to one or two hours per week, for at least two months. The times of greatest need for volunteers are weekdays from 2pm – 6pm. Some short-term projects and single-event opportunities arise occasionally.

We have many different engagement opportunities for volunteer groups including but not limited to youth program support, Clubhouse beautification, and event support.  All of our group opportunities are excellent team building experiences that allow volunteers to have a positive impact on local communities while having fun.

We ask that volunteer groups consider doubling their impact by sponsoring their volunteer day.  This helps keep our Clubhouses up and running and provides youth with first-class programs, services, and facilities.  To learn more about the sponsorship levels and benefits please click here.

Types of Volunteer Activities

Beautification/Daylong Projects

Projects may include painting Clubs, tending gardens, organizing Club areas, “spring-cleaning,” or mural projects.  Your efforts positively impact our youth by enhancing their environment and showing that the community cares about them and their Clubhouse.

Youth Interactions

Connecting you directly with our members demonstrates what we are all about!  Through participating in activities such as tutoring, art projects, science experiments, or even leading themed carnival games – your group will be a positive force in the lives of our Club kids.
