Volunteering

Our volunteers are a vital component to making a variety of programs available to our club members. The time that our volunteers donate to our clubs is precious; with every volunteer comes the chance for our kids to gain a different perspective.

Adult Volunteers: For those 19 years and older

Our timeline can vary depending on the individual needs of each volunteer:

 1.    Follow this link and apply online: Volunteer Application Form. 
 2.  Within two business days the Volunteer Coordinator will call and ask a few questions about your interests, skills, and availability. She        will also conduct a one-time trial visit to the club of your choice so you can see what volunteering looks like first hand.
  3. Fill out the disclosure forms for us to run two background checks;
                    a.    Washington State Patrol (WATCH)
                    b.    TalentWise Sex-Offender Registry Check/National Criminal Check
  4. Attend the next Volunteer Orientation/Information Session:
  • In person orientation and information sessions when applicable
  • Conference call orientations can also be conducted for maximum flexibility
  • Contact the Volunteer Coordinator: Kimberly Kunkle for questions (253) 502-4624 or kunklek@bgcsps.org              
  5. Watch an interactive video about keeping club kids safe (Takes 30 minutes)

Following these steps you will have a chance to tour the club of your interest, turn in your signed forms, and set up a day to start having a BLAST as a Boys & Girls Club Volunteer!
