Volunteer

Give your time to a child...
 

We want to invite you out to the BGCNN Volunteer’s Meeting on June 15th @10am. There will be FOOD, FUN, and FELOWSHIP for ALL!

In anticipation of the orientation, the Club is recruiting tutors to help with general homework completion and to assist as tutors in math, science, reading and English. The computer technology lab also needs volunteers with computer experience. Other volunteers and mentors are needed in the games room, teaching fair play and social skills while also teaching game skills.

The Club plans to start weekly music, dance and drama programs and to expand the fine arts programs with the help of volunteers, opening up the minds of youth to the potential that the arts can play in each of their lives.

The athletic center is seeking coaches or assistant coaches and referees to assist in physical education activities. Volunteers also would be helpful on an ongoing basis with the Cub Scout, Boy Scout and Girl Scout programs that are offered to Club members.

"We have a wide range of volunteer opportunities, and would be so grateful for your participation,” said Unit Director Wardell Carter. "Through all of these types of volunteer opportunities you will be able to affect so many young lives. The benefits, such as seeing a child develop new skills and self-esteem and become responsible teens, are endless”

Volunteers, mentors, and tutors can commit to daily, weekly, or monthly service. In addition, volunteers are needed for special engagements through the Boys & Girls Club of America (BGCA) Career Launch program sessions where teens will be given the opportunity to focus monthly on two career fields. "We are looking for individuals with experience in the fields of fine arts, computers, engineering, food/hospitality services, banking, medicine, law, education, government and the military who can serves as mentors and help our young people understand careers in these areas,” said Phillip Mumford, executive director.

In the fall, the Club will begin the BGCA Youth for Unity Series, engaging our youth in a discussion about the differences and similarities of people in our community – people from different races, religions, or ethnic backgrounds. "Through that discussion and dialogue, we hope our youth members will become more tolerant and understanding of cultures different from their own,” Carter said. "We are looking for individuals or groups of individuals willing to come and share different values and backgrounds.”

Finally, the Club is trying to put together an "On Call” tutor list of volunteers that may have knowledge and expertise in high school level math, science, reading, English and other fields. The intent is to be able to link youth from the high school who seek assistance in their education with qualified tutors. These tutors would only be called if a high school student requested assistance in a specific area of study or if the school recommended such services. In addition, current and future parents are encouraged to join the Parents’ Auxiliary to help with special events such as the annual Christmas party, back-to-school drive, and to assist with Club programs.
Below you will find a Grid of all the types of volunteer opportunities that the club currently has avaialbe as we move into the fall program. if you have a skill that you would like to share but you don't find it listed come to our orientation anyway as we are constantly updating the opportunities that we have for community involvement.
