Our Volunteer Program
There are many different reasons why people volunteer. Some are interested in serving youth as a profession; some are in the middle of a career and wish to bring a new dimension to their lives; and others are retired and choose to give of their time and share their wealth of experience.
Whatever the reason for volunteering – everyone receives personal benefits! There is a great deal of satisfaction that comes from being involved in the lives of others, as well as positive psychological advantages. Meeting and interacting with Club members, staff and volunteers helps to develop personal maturity on all levels. Everyone connected with our Clubs is encouraged to join together as a team to provide A Positive Place for Kids! The needs of Club members are a priority first and foremost. Together, we all can make a difference.
As a volunteer, our Clubs support any special talents or interests you may wish to share with our youth that will help sharpen their skills and enhance their learning opportunities.
Boys & Girls Club of Stanislaus County request that its volunteers:
• Are at least 18 years old
• Submit a Volunteer Application
• Agree to a Screening process
• Interview with paid Club staff
• Attend an orientation on the organization
• Sign an agreement form verifying that procedures and expectations have been read and understood
What is most important in volunteer placement is that an individual’s skills, talents and time commitments match and meet the needs of the Club. The application process will assist in determining placement.
For more information or to volunteer, please call Boys & Girls Clubs of Stanislaus County at (209) 222-5826.
