Junior Staff Volunteer Opportunities: For those under 19 years of age

At the Boys & Girls Clubs we encourage community involvement at all ages and levels. Since our Clubs provide programming for youth ages 6-18 we have a minimum age requirement of all volunteers to be 19 and older. For those interested in volunteering who are younger than 19 and still in school please visit one of our local branch locations to discuss our Jr. Staff volunteer opportunities. This program is designed to assist in developing leadership skills for Club members and the youth within the surrounding community.
