Volunteer Resources

Welcome! We're glad you're interested in volunteering with your local Boys & Girls Club and the CareerLaunch program. Here you'll find information about the CareerLaunch program. There are also many helpful resources that will help you in your journey as a program volunteer.

BGCA would like to recognize our partner Gap Inc. and their volunteers for making the CareerLaunch program such a success. Without your guidance, assistance and encouragement, our teens wouldn't have as many options for academic success, exciting opportunities or positive adult role models as they do. Thank you!

So what is a volunteer and why does a Club need volunteers? A Boys & Girls Club volunteer is any person who freely offers to contribute skills or services to help the Club strengthen or expand its impact on youth development, without an expectation of financial or other tangible compensation from the organization. Simply put, volunteers provide services that are meaningful and essential to the operation of a Boys & Girls Club.

One of the reasons Boys & Girls Clubs are so successful is because they have lots of help. Community members, as volunteers, help out in any number of ways: coaching, assisting at an event, spending an afternoon helping a child with their homework or serving on a board or advisory committee. No matter what their role, volunteers play a vital part of Club operations and programs.

You, your time and your skills are valuable resources for our Clubs and youth! Thank you for your interest, passion and dedication!
