Volunteer

Do you want to get involved in your local community? Do you want to make a positive impact on the lives of Central Georgia children? Becoming a Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Georgia volunteer allows you to do both!
 
Individual and corporate volunteer opportunities can be tailored to your specific interests and talents and to the needs of the organization. Some are one-time projects and others become ongoing relationships. Here are some volunteer ideas that can really make a difference at our Clubs:
 
  • Mentor or tutor a Club member  
  • Coach a sports team
  • Teach a performing arts class
  • Judge an art exhibit
  • Coordinate a field day or a career day
  • Throw a holiday or birthdayparty
  • Landscape, garden or paint
  • Chaperone a field trip
 
Volunteer Application Process
 
Once a volunteer application is completed, you will be put in touch with a Service Director at one of our Clubs. If it’s a good fit, the Service Director will contact the Volunteer Coordinator to set up a background check. Volunteers under the age of 18 will be required to become Club members at the Club where they would like to volunteer.

In every community, many boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and 
companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision, especially in the after school hours between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Young people need postive alternatives.
 
At the Boys & Girls Club, young people explore and develop their talents.  Boys and girls aged 6-18, who might otherwise be on the streets, are engaged in life-enhancing programs that are proven to help them grow into responsible, productive adults.
Boys & Girls Clubs offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence. The average member at B&GCCG spends 10 hours a week in life-enhancing program.
